Workshop

On the surface VTS appears to be very easy and simple. In this two day program participants will themselves look carefully at selected artworks, talk about what they observe and be encouraged to support their interpretation with visual evidence. Through deeper interrogation of the method participants will have a number of opportunities to practice VTS themselves in a supportive environment. Participants state this is the most rewarding part of the program. Information covered will include image selection and student observation. This program leaves teachers with the confidence to commence teaching VTS competently in their classrooms and communities.
