Water is one of our most precious resources. It is essential for life and survival, and also for cultural and artistic expression. Australia is the driest inhabited continent in the world, and it is important that we protect this precious resource and ensure a sustainable water future.This resource will take students to works of art that connect with the theme of water. Art works about the sea, coast, rivers, creeks, lakes, and dams, as well as the fauna and flora inhabiting these areas which serve as inspiration for artists, also provide a setting for, or window on, social history and cultural traditions in our country.
Guided sessions: Free and available by arrangement
Duration: 45-60 minutes
Suitable: Years 2-7
