General Description

This course will explore strategies for teaching painting including a variety of approaches, media and techniques. These will address a sequence of learning and reflect identified learning objectives – a documentation of ‘just what exactly you are trying to get the students to do and learn’. Ideas for artmaking will be aligned with each of the frames and linked with art history/art criticism. Each painting activity will be positioned in a possible unit of work and ways for students to evaluate their own painting and make connections with the artwork of artists will be explored to help students to use art concepts and terms.

Animated, expressive presenter. Kept me engaged. Linking in of Artists and Artworks to material practice to help an understanding of layering, meaning, the idea of concepts – conceptual practice.

Very engaging presenter although at times moved so quickly it was difficult to get the most out of each activity. Could be a two-day course.
