Janet is a dynamic and passionate presenter with so much depth and breadth of knowledge as a Art educator. After 26 years of teaching myself, I have learnt so many things today – especially integrating art studying and making & using verbs in talking and writing about art of students own art making.

A bit rushed and less on teaching to the (year 12) BOW specifically, which I expected, more on the lead up through Year 11. It was still hugely interesting, just not what I thought I’d signed up for.
