Imagine you can easily teach and assess creativity while delivering your existing art or design classes!
...and significantly improve Visual Diary skills at the same time!
After talking to 750 secondary art and design teachers, we found out that:
...and about the Visual Diary:
So we did a couple of things by developing a method supported by a workbook...
Are you a parent looking to buy a Visual Diary Guide?
Normally, your school will tell you where to buy (through a booklist). If that's not the case, please contact us and we will help you.
Are you a teacher who booklisted the Visual Diary Guide?
Then, for each teacher using it in your school, you are entitled to a FREE teacher copy, sample implementation plans and ACARA-based sample projects. Claim them here.
Tested, affordable and easy to use!
Fully aligned with ACARA 8.3 and the CCT capabilities, tested through trials and actual use, it works with any teacher in any team with any curriculum as it solely remains within the scope of the Visual Diary. Join the nearly 70 progressive schools using it.
It now also supports student-led, teacher-led and inquiry-led projects.
Book a free 20-minute online meeting with us or call (03) 9015 4144. We will share our screen with you and walk you through the solution and the books. Free samples are available after the meeting.

Year 7/8 guide
All new Second Edition
Have lots of fun while immersed in creating
(and elect art in Year 9)
Year 9/10 guide
All new First Edition
Develop a personal style with challenging activities
(while learning about career options)
Students tend to treat idea development - the most creative step - like a job.
Many students end up producing versions of the same idea.
Without a guide, logistics can be a problem when students lead with their own ideas.
"Good Afternoon, just a quick email to say how much we are enjoying implementing the Visual Diary Guides with our Year 7 and 8 cohorts. Feedback has been soundly positive and the activities have been well received by staff and students."

"There is a lot happening in each book and the layout helps to create a sense of fast-paced thinking, then deeper thought, followed by connection of ideas, resolution then reflection. I really like the way that the language and focus changes with each year level, particularly with the emphasis on creativity being shifted from a personal expression standpoint to being presented as an advantageous trait in future careers in the year 9/10 book. This addresses the issue of students frequently underappreciating the value of creativity and failing to realise the vast number of employment opportunities in creative industries. Top stuff!"
