Great course run by Janet. Her knowledge is invaluable. Particularly thankful for the hand outs of information to refer to. Learned further how to deconstruct images without focusing too much on TITLES.
Thank you.

The examples of artworks were excellent. The timeline was great. Would love a session in making an Art History Timeline. Can we include Artmaking in the session? Overall, loved it and learned a lot!

Janet’s information was succinct and articulated in interesting ways. She provided a great range of images so we were able to apply information she provided to each one in a practical way. This makes it easier to apply to Stage 6 programs.q

Very intense but informative session. A few more ideas for Stage 4 would be helpful. I have lots of ideas that I can now implement in my teaching practice. Colour printouts were very helpful.

Was very informative. I learned a lot about how to structure activities for different grades in a way that links all syllabus ideas, without having to teach them independently. Learned a lot more about Art History and Architecture. Very engaging. Inspired my teaching :)

Very informative with good artworks to talk about. Would have liked more practical applications. Too much content talking on artworks, not enough on how to plan and structure units, lessons, programs. More structure specifics and target year groups. Great resources to take back to school.
