Photography and Printing: a case study to examine strategies for the new senior art syllabus.
Working through the four inquiry processes described in the new syllabus: Reflecting, Developing, Researching and Resolving, the workshop will focus on the development of visual language in the context of photography printing and drawing. Of the four contexts suggested for the first two units of the syllabus, ‘personal, contemporary, formal and cultural’, the workshop will concentrate on three ‘personal, contemporary and formal’.
A lecture will be presented by artists/ workshop leaders Marian Drew and Bruce Reynolds examining a reverse chronology within their own practice as well as some relevant contemporary international artists.

The workshop will focus on the unit Art as Lens, and assist teachers in the development of practical strategies, techniques and theoretical frameworks to assist with transition to the new High School Senior Art Curriculum. Teachers will also find relevance in this workshop to other units in the new curriculum, and be equipped to develop new course materials to their own ends. Through the sharing of knowledge and experience, it is envisaged that participant art teachers will expand their networks and find a supportive community of art teachers that will have ongoing personal and professional benefits.
Workshop presenters, Marian Drew and Bruce Reynolds, have had 30 years of teaching experience in tertiary art institutions, and have exhibited extensively in Australia and internationally. Their work is held in most major art collections in Australia. Drew is also cited as an exemplar in the unit.
