ART MATTERS: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS
The National Art School offers professional development workshops for Visual Arts teachers informed by different studio disciplines and techniques, as well as upcoming exhibitions at the NAS Gallery. These events enable teachers to be guided through the collection with artists and gallery curators whilst working with artists, NAS alumni and staff to learn practical art-making skills to take back into the classroom.
DOBELL REGIONAL TEACHERS’ WORKSHOPS
Generously funded by the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation, the Dobell Regional Teachers’ Workshop offers two days of intensive drawing for teachers from NSW government high schools. Through the workshop a practicing artist from the NAS will encourage participants to share ideas and debate issues with peers while exploring technical and conceptual directions.
Each year a different NSW regional area is targeted to ensure this opportunity is extended to as many Visual Arts teachers as possible. In 2020 targeted regional areas will be the Riverina and Mid North Coast.
Dates to be announced later in 2020.
