ACCA's Schools Education Manager Helen Berkemeier provided a fascinating and enjoyable teacher preview of Ryan Gander: READ ONLY and it was a great opportunity for all who attended to catch up with old acquaintances and network with new ones.
The evening also saw the election of the 2015-16 AEV Council - we said goodbye to some long-serving Council members and welcomed some new faces in their place. The newly-elected Council is excited about what the future holds for AEV, and thanks those who have departed for all of their hard work in the past.
For an overview of AEV's activities and finances over the past year, the 2014-15 Annual Report and Treasurer's Report is available in the members' area.
VCAA Information Session & consultation - VCE Studio Arts & Art
The VCE Art and Studio Arts study designs are under review. Drafts of VCE Art and Studio Arts will be available online in early June and consultation will occur through an online questionnaire.
AEV hosted a VCAA information session in Melbourne. VCAA Visual Arts Curriculum Manager Kathryn Hendy-Ekers provided the update.
The consultation period for the changes ended on Friday 3 July.
AEV has begun to host regular Meetup groups that allow you to engage with interesting and relevant happenings around Melbourne, whilst also giving you the chance to network with and meet other art educators. It doesn't cost to join Meetup, you only need to pay to enter the gallery/event/exhibition and for the drink organised for afterwards!
