The Magic Object learning program supports educators and F-12 student engagement with contemporary art. Learning programs are aligned with the Australian Curriculum: Visual Arts learning area, and connect to the general capabilities and cross curriculum priority areas.

Learning opportunities offered through the program include:
– responding by using eyes, ears and imaginations
– discussing how and why works are made (and displayed)
– investigating a diversity of forms, exploring varieties of techniques and materials
– sharing what is seen as an audience
– making by experimenting with new or familiar materials to tell their own story


Encourage students to take a closer look at selected works of art and to explore key concepts associated with the exhibition using our free interpretive guides.
