The UCT Irma Stern Museum and the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) have partnered on a collaborative project, inviting Grade 11 Visual Arts or Design learners to redesign and re-imagine an artwork by Irma Stern (1894 – 1966).
The learners were invited to visit the museum or the museum’s website and to critically look at, analyse, re-think and re-interpret the art of Irma Stern. Learners also attended education workshops at the museum and created inspiring, critical and/or fun art and design pieces – from cushions to paintings, handbags, drawings, textiles and children’s books to fashion pieces.
The exhibition showcases a selection of these inspiring learners’ designs and artworks – chosen by an independent panel with artists and educators Rory Emmett and Sitaara Stodel – on display for teachers, learners, their families and the general public to enjoy.
Admissions: Teachers and learners enter for free.
