THANKYOU, this workshop provided great ideas and resources to take back to school.

conference participant

Session was great for my own artist practice, but also for my teaching practice – teaching skills and techniques to students to help with being reflective in their art practice.

conference participant

It was very interesting and engaging to explore the presenter’s process and consider an alternative approach for making. The art historical backwards mapping she engages in is an excellent example for Visual Art students.
