Bobbi & S.A.L.T.A.

Resources to support teachers and students in the classroom and in advocacy discussions.

Scroll down for our downloadable Risk Taker Art Maker series.

Bobbi & S.A.L.T.A. is an advocacy project by the Queensland Art Teachers Association in response to the implications of subject scaling and enrolment in Senior Visual Art. We’ve busted some of the common myths that students might hear around subject selection time in our animation, “Bobbi & S.A.L.T.A*: The value of studying Senior Visual Art”.

We hope you will share this widely with your school communities and students to help them make informed subject choices. If you’re a teacher or student of another arts subject, the messaging here is the same. Long story short: study what you are good at, what you enjoy and can perform well in.

We worked with @bughopdesigns to produce this animation and there is more to come! Watch this space for more Bobbi & S.A.L.T.A* resources, factsheets, a transcript, and even an off-shoot series of interviews with non-arts industry professionals (who studied Senior Visual Art).

Please share liberally!
