Two-part program, focusing on two aspect of community art: Environment and Public Spaces.
Combining the role of both teacher and community artist Jeanette Jennings extends students learning outside the usual boundaries. These rich resources present, teachers and art educators in the broadest sense, the opportunity to take their students work to another level; from curriculum based examples through to public works that can be installed in school grounds or broader community places. The film documentation and the additional CD-Rom provides teaching curriculum for individual drawing projects, printmaking and painting units, ceramic projects and other collaborative works.
Jeanette Jennings is a passionate advocator of public and community arts, particularly with their integration into art education in schools. She has a fine arts degree, majoring in sculpture and ceramics, and a diploma of Education to teach and work with children and adults across all levels and community groups. Jeanette has made her mark in teachers’ education by giving lectured at the University of Melbourne, running workshops for teachers through Art Education Victoria, and presenting at international conferences.
This film provides three examples of art projects drawing inspiration from various areas of the curriculum such as literature, history and science.
