A great lens to focus my lesson planning and programming. It is able to cover a great deal of historical and contemporary art theory (making experience) to provide language in ESL art setting.

Janet is so knowledgeable. Her expertise was invaluable and provided so many useful ideas to take back to the classroom. I also loved the way they pushed students critical and creative thinking, unit materials, and historical/ critical practice.

Exceptionally presented. Lots of character, insight, passion and clarity. The content was not as such well-organised but did all come together on the course being taught.

Excellent unpacking of how to use material practice investigations and usage into Senior students' understanding of practice, history and material practice. The employment of actions and choices within the frames was a very useful tool to implement in my classroom.
