Excursion Planning and Learning Opportunities

ARTS EDUCATION WORKSHOPS 2017 – EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

Sculpture at Scenic World runs from April 7th -May 7th 2017 and you can now book your school to participate in our Sculpture Exhibition and opt in for a guided tour at Scenic World, Katoomba.

Students will increase their understanding of art criticism and art history by engaging with artists and artsworkers in a guided tour. Students will discuss the relationships between the artist, their world view, the artwork and the environment/ audience.

 School excursions at Sculpture at Scenic World provide a unique learning arts and environmental experience. We have:

  • Qualified, passionate educators, fun and interactive indoor and outdoor activities including riding the world’s steepest railway, steepest and highest cable cars in Australia with spectacular views from the Scenic Cableway of the Jamison Valley and the Three Sisters.
  • Dynamic learning with over 4 kilometres of Scenic Walkway ideal for observing the temperate rainforest’s flora and fauna and discovering the site’s coal mining heritage
  • The Scenic Railway and Scenic Cableway provide educators with easy access to the natural environment of the Jamison Valley
  • Scenic World offers diverse landscapes like sandstone cliffs and rugged canyons to waterfalls. The region is also home to the Wollemi Pine, a plant with ancient significance.

Guided and Self Guided tours of the exhibition generally take a further 1-1.5 hours.

We link our content to the National Curriculum or NSW Board of Studies Syllabus so that the learning has relevance back in the classroom.
