Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art in the Classroom goes to Queensland
Kylie Neagle Education Coordinator
AGSA Education has again been on the road to promote the program Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in the classroom and the associated publication. Earlier this year the Education Coordinator, Kylie Neagle, delivered a keynote presentation to the Queensland Art Teachers Association conference in Brisbane, where teachers heard about the strategy-based approach to responding to First Nations art developed by AGSA and participated in a hands-on workshop focusing on the work Every face has a story, every story has a face: Kulila by Yarrenyty Arltere artists.
With the generous support of Zart Art, all 306 participants received a copy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in the classroom. Due for release in early 2023, a second volume of the publication will include new activity examples for teachers to demonstrate in the classroom, along with a range of new content from First Nations artists and writers, including Anita Heiss, Carly Dodd and Cara Kirkwood.
