Turner Student Learning Program
Turner is regarded as one of the greatest landscape painters. His poetic interpretation of nature was revolutionary.
This exhibition provides students an insight into Turner’s ability to capture the atmospheric impression of light, as well as life and events of the 18th century to mid-19th century. Students can explore how Turner represented the turbulent times of slavery, migration, industrial revolution, conflicts and modernisation.

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.
