Erth Visual & Physical Inc. The Dream of the Thylacine

Erth Visual & Physical Inc. The Dream of the Thylacine | Primary creative and digital arts | Scoop.it
Emma Pressman's insight:

Erth is a really impressive Sydney based visual and physical theatre company who make work often accessible to children incorporating superbly made puppets in. One of their main is objectives is “to create work that is indicative of an Australian culture”.  For this reason the website is has relevant material to access when exploring HSIE and creative Arts. While their website is impressive and worth looking at to see whats on and at the gallery of creations including life-like dinosaurs and marsupials, the behind the scenes footage of Erths production "The Dream of the Thylacine" is particularly interesting. Based on the illustrated children’s storybook by Ron Brooks and Margret Wild  the behind the scenes footage is a great resource and creative arts approach to exploring the stage 3 HSIE topic on ancient Australian animals, revealing the mechanics behind creating such a show and integrating literacy. The behind the scenes can also be found on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvAy_uyz020 and additional footage on the production and the Thylacine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRMWYjbG2rg. Other shows of educational relevance include Erths Dinosaur Zoo and I, Bunyip found on the website.

Exquisite Corpse | Lessons for Visual & Media Art

Emma Pressman's insight:

The exquisite corpse drawing game is a really great collaborative activity . This link provides a sophisticated outcome along with clear instructions on materials and process. The site also places the game in a historical art context and how it came out of the modernist art movement-Surrealism. I used the game in a stage 3 art class where we explored surrealist art practices and concepts and found it really fun and effective. The game and subject area can be modified and simplified for a range of ages.
