Primary Cluster | Gold Coast

King’s Christian College (Reedy Creek), Art Studio

FRIDAY |  3 Mchar 2023,


Part 1 – a time for sharing ideas on units of work, resources, behaviour management and just the general running of an art studio and an art program.

Part 2 will be a fun hands-on experience lead by a local artist who has painted the props and sets of many of the Marvel movies. He is going to show us some fun ways to get students attention. This cluster is suited to Primary teachers who teach visual art. It should be both helpful and fun.
