PD | Gertrude Contemporary presents CAOTR+H at Gertrude Contemporary

Contemporary Art on the Road + Home is a teacher professional development program founded to bring Gertrude Studio Artistsart educators and teachers together to exchange ideas, share creative experiences and explore contemporary art and culture. The program has been designed to introduce Primary and Secondary art teachers to a range of hands-on, expertly designed strategies and resources for teaching contemporary art in their classroom.

In 2019, CAOTR+H will journey to Shepparton Art MuseumHorsham Regional ArtGalleryCastlemaine Art Museum and present two workshops at our home locations Gertrude Glasshouse, Collingwood and Gertrude Contemporary, Preston South.

The first part of the program consists of formal presentations by educators from GertrudeContemporary, Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) and Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA).

A presentation and hands-on workshop by Gertrude Studio Artist Isadora Vaughan will form the second part of the program. Vaughan will lead a workshop into the experimentation of material technologies, considering the basic physical and chemical properties of materials, their histories, and push the boundaries of resources that are processed for specific applications. The workshop will consider these materials and their capacity to suggest meaning beyond themselves – poetic, political, organic or otherwise.
