Educators in search of lesson ideas incorporating visual art may be interested in perusing the education resources provided by the Auckland Art Gallery in New Zealand. This collection of thematically-grouped resources is targeted towards primary and secondary students and includes multiple options for use during a gallery field trip and in the classroom. For example, in the secondary level resource "A Thousand Words: Analysing Visual Texts in the Gallery," readers will find a video on teaching creativity in English classes, a "teachers' pack" PDF explaining the curriculum links of this resource, two PowerPoint files for use prior to visiting the gallery, numerous downloadable worksheets for independent learning at the gallery, and several creative writing resources. While these and other resources on the site are intended for use at the Auckland Art Gallery, they are generally written as such that they could be used as a model to adapt for use in other locations.
