Visual art educator Erin Knight leads this customised workshop for teachers, introducing the Cosmopolitan education kit and ways of incorporating the exhibition into the classroom.

The education kit explores how artists of the 1930s adapted and adopted new ideas current at that time. Developed as a resource for primary and secondary teachers, it inspires a practical art making program and provides a framework to be adapted to suit the needs of the classroom.

Participate in the workshop, experience a close reading exercise and then bring your students to view the exhibition.
