This workshop was developed in collaboration with Kelly Reedy, a former lecturer at the National Institute of Education, who specialises in teaching how museums and galleries can be used to enhance student learning through visual arts. This workshop is created to engage educators in contemporary art and artistic practices. Highlighting the educational aspects of the various works presented in Amar Kanwar: The Sovereign Forest, it will allow the teachers to prepare for visits with their school classes.
Kelly Reedy (United States/Singapore) has worked in Singapore for over 18 years as an artist and educator. Her mixed media paintings, prints and installations reflect her keen interest in the ancient techniques still used in Asian traditional arts as well as the rich symbolism embedded in its mythologies. She has exhibited her artworks internationally in Paris, Chicago and Berlin, as well as locally at the Jendela Visual Arts Space, Esplanade, the Singapore Tyler Print Institute, and Alliance Française. Engaged in museum education for more than a decade, Reedy has developed educational resources for the National Gallery Singapore and trained teachers at the National Institute of Education, specialising in visual arts education in museums and galleries.
