New Maharaja Online Education Resource

January 10th, 2011

Delve into the art and themes of the special exhibition Maharaja: The Splendour of India’s Royal Courts in a fun and interactive way!

AGO School Programs has launched an online resource designed to expand the experience of the exhibition for teachers, students, and anyone who is interested in exploring the exhibition further. Get up close and personal with some of the artworks and objects using the zoom tool to preview the exhibition before your visit, or learn more after visiting. Thought-provoking questions help guide you as you explore the objects in detail and help you to imagine what life was like at the time of the Maharajas. Try it!

What connections can we make today to the lives of Maharajas? Extend your experience and make contemporary links to the themes explored in the exhibition using Tumblr, a blogging site. Engage with the relevant connections we’ve presented and add to our growing commentary. Blog and reblog your own experiences of procession, power, cross-cultural influence, gorgeous clothing, fabulous jewellery, and hot cars. Check it out and add your two cents!
