Bring your group upstairs to the gallery and explore some of the artworks in current exhibition. Guided by Deirdre, our learning and engagement coordinator uses visual thinking strategies (VTS) to discuss and build a deeper understanding of ‘what’s going on in this artwork’. This informal conversation is an opportunity for you to focus and reflect on multiple perspectives, enhancing engagement and enjoyment of learning through art.
Visual Thinking Strategies is the process of looking, thinking and vocalising what we see in a work of art. It is about listening to others and expanding our thoughts on the possibilities within a painting, sculpture, drawing or work of photography. VTS improves oral and visual literacy, problem solving and collaborative interactions among peers. Suitable for all ages VTS tours are best with groups of 5 or more.
