You will be provided with the techniques to get students generating their own ideas from scratch, effectively creating an “ideas bank” to use for future projects. As part of an Inspiration Process™, you will step into the student’s shoes by getting started on your own Visual Diary and generating some art ideas. You will conduct and record an art materials experiment, explore the process of iteration, and learn how a “slow hunch” can develop over time. Finally, in selecting your best idea you will produce a unique finished art work.
Teachers actively engaging in this workshop may address the following Australian Professional Standards for Teachers: 2.1, 3.3, 5.1 & 5.2.
Typically running for 2.5 hours (with one break), the workshops are inline with AusVELS, The Arts, Learning Focus which explicitly refers to the use of Visual Diaries from Year 1 to Year 10.
Visual Diaries are all about ideas!
Getting the most out of Visual Diaries is becoming more important in the art room. This workshop explores the logistics of using Visual Diaries in a busy art room and their potential as an assessment tool.
