Primary School Art Competition
Geelong 2020 Wooden Boat Festival is pleased that works from the Swedish Embassy's Children's Art Relay (themed on Daniel Solander) will be exhibited along with entries from Geelong Primary Schools in the art competition for March 2020.

What is on offer?

Not long to go now ! Art Teachers may be interested to know that the replica Endeavour and the touring First Nations exhibition from the National Maritime Museum will be in Geelong prior to the festival. Students can gain inspiration from these sources too.

The competition theme, “Solander and Banks: The Floating Laboratory”, allows teachers to blend school STEM topics into the artistic exploration of the importance around the scientific and ethnological interests of Daniel Solander and Joseph Banks as they voyaged around the South Pacific between 1768-1770.

A teachers’ information sheet on Solander and Banks is available on the festival website.
