Australian Art Works from 1788 - 21st Century will be

support thoughtful learning. During this workshop the Zart
consultant will structure questions that will encourage
participants to think deeper, to discuss and debate, to wonder and
to create. The use of graphic organisers will be used to record and
assess student's thinking. The link to Australian History will be
made and the potential of using Art works to engage students
learning and understanding of History will be explored. The staff
