Art and Art Education


Studio Practice & Theory

Through a variety of seminars, symposia, conferences, workshops, on-site experiences and lectures our students are challenged to study the complex interactions between visual phenomena and their disciplinary and socio-cultural contexts. Our courses integrate theory and practice within an ongoing dialogue positioned to focus imaginative and critical thinking.

If you click on the images below, they will open up and tell you more about some of the experiences that form our Program. The images and narratives that present themselves are the outcome of a range of cross-disciplinary collaborations. 

For example, the heart of the Program is formed by studio and pedagogical practices that both inform and are informed by multiple methods of investigation, interpretation and application. 

We hope to inspire pedagogical action and research that keep alive the visual arts in K-12 schooling, and promote informed and innovative practitioners in higher education, as well as researchers who contribute to the forward movement of pedagogical-artistic-aesthetic knowledge.
