Great ideas for Performance & Presentation - PAN Twilight Conference August 2013 - Kate Schirmer

Classroom teachers are often asked to organise performances - in the classroom and at whole-school events - which can be daunting! This fun and accessible session will equip you with ideas, inspiration and experience for your next performances, which explore and celebrate cross-curricular priorities through music and drama! During the hour, the group will consider Australia's musical "language" and workshop two performances from contemporary Australian music. One piece focuses on an Indigenous Perspective and the other is designed to start a dialogue with students on Sustainability.

Drawing to Persuade - David Lovegrove

My approach to persuasive drawing teaching is to appeal to the young artists instinctive creativity as well as their intellectual need to ‘make’ artistic things that look convincing and skillful. I call this approach “Drawing on both sides of the Brain” (obviously with a nod to the famous book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain).

Come over to my side: Persuasive Writing

To internalise a process or information it is necessary to interact with it, use it or manipulate it.  If a student has an internalised understanding of what the mechanisms, structure and vocabulary of persuasive writing is, this frees them to focus on content and be creative. 

Clay inspired by place

These notes are from the March 2015 Twilight Conference. They demonstrate how to construct a tripod pot from a rolled slab of clay. Texture is applied to the slab before it is rolled around a cylinder to create the pot shape. This is an easy pot to build as it is made from one piece of clay and has minimaljoins.
