PD | Gertrude Contemporary presents CAOTR+H at Shepparton Art Museum

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 Georgina Cue will form the second part of the program. Georgina Cue will lead a workshop centred around set design and photography. Through combining painting and sculpture techniques with found materials, this workshop will explore the experimental possibilities of using large-scale sets as backdrops for photography and video.
This will enable teachers to freely experiment with using adhoc techniques of theatrical staging to create photographic imagery in their classroom.
