Course Outline

This course will provide participants with a thorough foundation in the technique and practice of blackboard drawing. Through practice and experimentation with a range of chalkboard images and techniques there will be an opportunity for participants to gain confidence in drawing, helping to expand on classroom teaching methodology in order to plan and organise meaningful teaching programs. Mastery of these techniques allows teachers to produce creative and aesthetic drawings which enrich learning activities for a range of primary and high school age groups. By sharing their knowledge and experiences with other teachers through a final live Zoom, participants will be able to develop collaborative networks which encourage better learning practices.
