VCE Art Analytical Frameworks

These resources have been developed with links to the Victorian History curriculum (Levels 7 and 8). They introduce students to the objects in the exhibition as primary sources which contribute to our understanding of Ancient China, and include questions and activities designed to stimulate discussion and deepen students’ understanding.
Ancient China: Secrets from the Past is available for collection at the north (schools’) entrance on the day of your visit and provides starting points to explore the NGV’s own Collection of ancient Chinese art.
