Contemporary art is fun and fearless. It can look like anything. Even objects and experiences never considered art are today part of the contemporary art canon. With the Ramsay Art Prize as the backdrop, explore new ways you can incorporate contemporary art into your classroom.

Come on a process-based making journey, facilitated by artist Ruby Chew, and inspired by the Ramsey Art Prize. Discover alternative routes of making, leading to new techniques and outcomes. Learn practical skills to take to your classroom, enabling your students to break down the pressure of perfectionism, embrace happy accidents along with challenges and restrictions as valid and unique lines of enquiry.
