Making Art and Teaching Art
with Dominic White
Day 2 Session
Suitable for: SECONDARY LEVELS
About the Workshop
I am a Contemporary Artist who supports his art making habit and family through teaching. Both teaching and art making is informed by my Indigenous Heritage through my birth family (Trawoolaway Descendant)
We will be exploring the tensions and complexity of teaching Indigenous Art and making in the Indigenous Art space from my perspective. We’ll use guided mind-mapping exercises as a way of developing visual literacy and art analysis skills in our students and ourselves.
We will complete a Place Scape making activity as a way of understanding aspects of Place Scape. To do this we will work with words, pictures, symbols, and abstract thought.
It is intended you will leave being comfortable with the complexity of teaching aspects of Indigenous Art, and as a teacher have a few more tools and structures to help folk delve deep and write about art.
