LEVEL: Key Stage 4 onwards. Oceania is a vast Pacific region including hundreds of islands and the many diverse peoples who inhabit them. The art of these cultures is equally diverse, yet this resource manages to detail fifteen examples that represent many key characteristics and spotlight their artistic contributions. Students begin each examination with a profile of the artist or the skills involved, before exploring the piece's function and its meaning in the artist's community. Classroom connections, study sheets and additional resources extend student thinking toward a broadened understanding of Oceanic art.
