Artist in High School
High School Art Mentoring and Educational Program
High school Art Mentoring and Education Program was a new program established by the Master of Teaching Course (University of Melbourne) and Victorian College of the Arts (VCA). The program aimed to promote visual art education in suburban high schools in Victoria region. Artists and students of Master of Teaching were sent to different high schools to conduct a two week long residency at the school throughout 2017.
I was assigned to work with a group of Year 10 students at Point Cook Senior Secondary College. Through the residency period, I designed and facilitated three workshops, including Rings of Emotions, Imagining Containers, and Onggi Master, introducing students to several approaches of conceptual thinking and sculptural and spatial practice in ceramic medium.
