We believe that the Arts are essential subjects for the holistic education of our children, and visual art provides an opportunity for critical thinking, problem-solving and meaning-making that is unique. To support teachers of visual art, Dr Sandra Johnson & Dr Geo Westraadt, both Senior lecturers in the Creative Arts department at the Education Faculty of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, in collaboration with James Smal, owner of SORTED, are planning an opportunity for them to learn more about the interpretation of the visual art curriculum, participate in practical workshops that will assist them in their own practice, listen to experts in the field as they share the most recent international trends in visual art education, and network with their colleagues.

 

THE newly-formed ART TEACHERS’ ASSOCIATION OF SOUTH AFRICA, with assistance from ‘SORTED’, will be hosting our first Symposium for teachers of Visual Art in the GET Phase.  Click here for information and dates of this Symposium.
