Feedback from teachers
Amanda Snell, Head of Art at PLC – “Content was EXCELLENT – as it showed the students that they could gain inspiration from their immediate environment – it didn’t have to be something extraordinary to develop into a strong sustainable theme of investigation. The talk provided an insight into the working context of an artist.- the initial idea, rough drawings, experimentation with materials through to finished works."
Letitia Morrow a VCE Studio Arts teacher – “The talk was a perfect fit for Studio Arts. It was exactly what I tell them to do, but to be able to visualise it in such a concrete way was excellent… the examples provided were very good. Yes there were enough diaries to look at. Content was excellent”. “The timing was perfect for Yr 12 students”.
Mrs Heather Landman, Head of Art, St Margaret's Senior School, Berwick - "Well paced and directed to students level of comprehension but extending this." ...Was the content suitable? "Yes, Great to see an informed art practice to finished work."
