K-6 Professional Learning Program – 5 hours Elective PD

Available to NSW Department of Education Teachers

Program overview

The aim of the program is to provide participants an opportunity to develop skills and strategies for teaching visual arts activities with their students. They will do this by observing, interpreting, and responding to their immediate environment at Ku-ring-gai National Park, Bobbin Head.

Participants will learn strategies to explore their immediate experience of the landscape to create preliminary works across a variety of mediums, including drawing and printing.

Bushwalking in the Ku-ring-gai National Park will provide exciting opportunities for participants to directly observe and visually document the subtle nuances of the natural environment using drawing and mixed media. Participants will investigate ways to create artworks using natural found objects. Teachers will be provided with written instructions and material lists for each artmaking activity in the event they wish to replicate it in their classrooms. 

Standards: Completing Learning on Country will contribute 7 hours of TIPL addressing 2.2.2, 6.3.2, 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
