Inspiration and insights to help you get ahead

KickstART is a student driven program that ArtEdVic presents in partnership with the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to support VCE Art: Creative Practice and VCE Art: Making and Exhibiting students and educators. Hear from NGV Top Arts exhibitors, high achieving students and the Top Arts curator to help current students gain inspiration and insight into VCE this year.

  • See and hear how high scoring students developed initial ideas and addressed the criteria in their folio and final artwork.
  • Access high scoring example folios that encompass a range of media.
  • Ask questions and gather tips to support your creativity to help you to excel.
  • Find out about resources, future exhibitions and programs to support your journey into the world of art.
  • Learn how past students found inspiration and understandings from visiting galleries

KickstART 2023 is also an excellent professional development opportunity for all Visual Arts Educators.

We have added teacher networking opportunities which will be held during the day.
Please note that each network meeting overlaps with the other session presentation.
