Tactile Selves Workshop

Professional Learning program for teachers

Friday 12 August 2022
Tactile selves

This workshop will take place at M16 Artspace, 21 Blaxland Crescent, Griffith, Canberra.

Boost your creativity and build a toolkit of practical strategies to develop positive creative learning experiences for your students.

Portraits provide pathways for conversations around identity, social history and inspiration for creative activity. In this hands on workshop, discover the possibilities of portraiture and explore elements of design through mixed media arts practise. You will create a finished work combining textile application, pencil and pen drawing.

This workshop will share techniques and ideas to apply in the classroom, embolden experimentation with mixed media and make curriculum connections.  

This workshop is useful for upper primary and secondary school teachers. It can be adapted, extended and produced across all skill levels.

Please bring along a printed photo or photocopy of yourself either full length or face, A4 or A3 in dimension. 

All other materials are supplied.

This is a TQI Accredited course.
