Write down three you can think of.2) Look at page 7-8 of your text.3) Areas to consider: intended meaning, art form, media and elements, social/cultural context and influences, history (and changing meanings), emotional response, audience, evaluation… FYI some good videos for teaching appreciation: National Art Gallery http://nga.gov.au/Home/Default.cfm http://www.youtube.com/user/NationalGalleryAus

  14. 14. Albert Einsteins quote, "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge" has always resonated with my daily practice. I believe Visual Arts helps our students and us asteachers to become human beings who are willing to embrace creativity and take risks. I seek to support all students and teachers I meet to enjoy the journey with Visual Arts as we explore, discover and learn together new things. It isfor this purpose for me it is an honour to teach Visual Arts. (Sandy Rawling)
