It's Not Just About Art: Images We Hold of Children as Artists?
I do not view myself as an expert on art - but as a teacher with a real appreciation of art and a keen interest in exploring the rich opportunities visual art programmes and opportunities can provide for young children’s learning and exploration.
Kei tua o te Pae shares the image of an arts education that “... explores, challenges, affirms, and celebrates unique artistic expressions of self, community, and culture…” In this workshop I am interested in considering not only examples of what this might look like but also the way the image of the child we hold possibly impacts or influences opportunities for children to explore unique artistic expressions of self.
Venue: Hamilton: Waikato Management School, University of Waikato. Auckland: Duncan McGhie Lecture Theatre, University of Auckland.
