Georgia McKay

“The 2018 VAESA conference delivered a wide range of experiences and has become the ‘leaping point’ for a range of new ideas in teaching Art and other subjects of the Australian Curriculum. My focus will be one of incorporating the natural world into Art and connecting the need for sustainability with these environments.”

Katie Walters

“As a visual art specialist in a regional setting, conferences such as the VASEA Annual Conference provide a wonderful and unique opportunity to connect with other primary and secondary specialist art educators. The time to connect with others, listen to amazing keynote speakers who opened my eyes to opportunities that are available in South Australia and the chance to immerse myself in the world of art are a highly beneficial way to feed my enthusiasm for teaching visual arts.

Tania Hamman

“The conference was both an inspiring and educational experience that I would recommend to any visual art teacher, and/or classroom teacher interested in visual arts. The conference was filled with insightful information, including talks delivered by various visual arts professionals and an assortment of visual art workshops were offered.”
