Abstract: 
This classroom research had as its goal the trialling of a method to engage students in a personal and critical study of artworks. The method involved looking at a previously 'unseen' artwork using a personal response approach. The evidence gathered from this exercise was then applied to the broader cultural context. This acquired knowledge allowed the student to make a critical response. The classroom research involved thirteen teachers in visual arts classrooms in secondary schools in New South Wales inviting their students to respond to a feminist artwork. The results indicate a definite need to provide this type of instruction and opportunity to both teachers and students. In line with the new New South Wales syllabus such approaches would enable students to engage with artworks from an informed critical framework.
