IMG_0124In 2008 and 2010 I was fortunate enough to take groups of VCE Art and Studio Arts students to the Sydney Biennale. Both years we spent a week in Sydney exploring the Biennale sites and also visiting Brett Whiteley’s studio in Surrey Hills. This program gave me a chance to immerse students in contemporary art culture and the effect on their folios when they returned to school was incredible. Not only this but the student’s found their dialogue for engaging with artworks became much more fluent and articulate. I had some wonderful art conversations with my students on these two trips and when visiting the 2012 Biennale I really missed them. Running this program was one of the experiences that started me thinking about working in Museum Education as a career.
