We have a range of learning resources to support educators introduce ideas, contexts and specific terms about Sri Lankan modern and contemporary art to preschoolers and students in primary and secondary school levels.
Our online learning resources include videos, worksheets, activity prompts and workbooks that are based on works of art that have been exhibited as part of our exhibitions programme. These resources also include a range of special activities created by invited artists, writers, designers, architects, and educators.
Professional Development for Educators
Artists, educators, and curators lead professional development days designed to guide educators through methods that bring Sri Lankan modern and contemporary art into the classroom. These multifaceted programmes introduce educators to tools that inspire critical thinking focussing on the integration of art and ideas with school curricula. We encourage educators of all disciplines to participate.
Our free lesson plans are designed to incorporate Sri Lankan modern and contemporary art into the classroom. Museum educators can develop each plan to promote learning through inquiry, experiential activities, and rigorous peer discussions. Lessons foster informed, critical understandings of art, culture, and current events.
For activities designed for young learners, preschoolers and students from Grades 1 to 5, please see our age-specific online worksheets and videos.
Educator Guides and Curriculum Review
In collaboration with teachers and artist educators the museum has embarked on a review of the local government school syllabi to identify how much is covered in relation to Sri Lankan modern and contemporary art. Educator Guides will be aimed at students of Grades 6 to 11. These materials can be adapted to suit other ages, grades, aptitudes, and geo-cultural and linguistic references accordingly.
Please sign up if you would like to be part of museum-led focus group discussions on curriculum review and educator guides.
