Eclectic!!! I love all the processes and use many. Ceramics was the
major study area and I taught that for a number of years. Now it is
nearly all Curriculum art for Preservice teachers in EC and Primary.
I love the problem solving element of visual art. and because of
accumulated experience get called upon to do all sorts of art
things within the faculty. A cartoon for the Library. A painting for a
group exhibition. a ceramic mug as a gift. And my favourite bit of
self expression is to be asked to make a card for a retiring collegue.
There is so much you can say in the drawing/print/painting/sculpture
that words alone cannot convey. I have exhibited, but that is not a
major concern. The children, with whom I often come in contact, ask,
"Are you an Artist?" Mentally I'm a teacher first but when I answer,
"Yes",the children seem more inclined to participate in their own art
expression.
I teach at Monash University Faculty of Education at Frankston, an
outer suburb, 40 K from the city of Melbourne Victoria, in the southern part
of Australia.
