Hiya, I am in a bit of a spot. I would really like to make some new friends who are art teachers, I am pretty isolated socially in my situation. I would also like get some face to face help, if you had the time. I am returning to the classroom and trying to get work with Ed Qld after an 8 year lapse and I would like to get reacquainted with what to teach in visual arts classroom years 8-12, its just not that easy to navigate this system in isolation, in Queensland and I am really really struggling. I think I need an experienced teacher to mentor me but I know how busy you all are. Is there anyone out there that would assist me to get going again, I live in Stafford in Brisbane. I am registered with Tracer but I'm too scared to take a first day of relief as I feel insecure I don't know enough and Ill take the day and drown. I am an experienced artist and do have teaching experience just not with what to teach at the various year levels- High school kids can be ....hmmm harsh.... Its a long story why I stopped teaching and now I feel like I am starting from scratch, and I don't want to give up again, any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your goodwill. ...
I am just wondering if I could get some advice on transferring photographs to ceramics...Should I use gum arabic and ink mix and then fire? Or use mode podge or gloss gel medium post-firing? I have done neither before. thanks in advance 😀😀 ...
