PD | Gertrude Contemporary presents CAOTR+H at Horsham Regional Art Gallery

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 Andrew Atchison will form the second part of the program. Andrew will lead a workshop where participants will learn techniques for making sculptural artworks and some of the unique opportunities for conceptual analysis of sculpture. As a group, they will consider how our physical position produces different perspectives onto a sculpture in-the-round from one person to the next, and how this situation can be conceptually analogous to differing intellectual views held within a group. Sculpture will be framed as an object lesson for considering artistic expression, personal differences and empathy.
