It was nice to see a new way of teaching art theory and being able to relate all of the VA outcomes including the Frames, C. Framework, practice etc with art history. I liked developing strategies for stage 4.

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!
