School groups should allow at least 90 minutes for the Monet & Friends experience. The feature show is 45 minutes in length, but schools may then engage with several 3-minute featurettes showcasing contemporary work from THE LUME Melbourne’s Digital Arts Program.
THE LUME Melbourne has a comprehensive COVID-Safe plan in place to ensure the comfort and safety of staff and students.
Pre-visit activities have been included to provide a ‘hook’ to the content presented. After the excursion, teachers should present the aims of the project to their students, supporting their knowledge and understanding and refining their artistic skills with a range or all of the suggested post-visit activities, depending on students’ needs and abilities.
Although this is primarily a visual arts program, the activities offer depth and richness through an opportunity to develop the General Capabilities of Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability and Intercultural Understanding. The project also offers an opportunity to provide a culturally responsive curriculum experience through close alignment with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures Cross-Curriculum priority.
Students should keep a journal throughout their project, showing their research, evaluation and analyses of artworks, thinking process, and initial sketches or planning for their final artwork.
