I love the ed resource - aside from the gorgeous, simple design, it's a fab intro to the Venice Biennale and the Australian artists exhibiting there in 2009!!

I think the resource is very useful. I like the K-6 ideas as they can integrate very well across the KLAs - they are not limited just to teaching art, but can be used to teach other areas. I find that exciting. Am sure my students will enjoy being creative too.

The opening piece by Dr Baguley is very interesting and helpful. By breaking down capabilities and expectations in the way that she has (concepts and suggestions), I think I can approach art in the classroom more confidently. As a primary teacher I have a limited experience in art, but have to teach it anyway - this will be very good for me. Thank you.

Hi Lucy,

Thanks for taking the time to get to know the Education Resource and making comment.

I am very pleased that you find Dr Baguley's opening chapter useful. In asking Dr Baguley to write this chapter, we hoped that teachers in primary schools might find new ways to bring art in the classroom, and pitch art lessons at the right level (considering co-ordination and cognitive development).

I hope you are able to implement some of the suggestions, and look forward to hearing more of your experience in working with the resource.

I like the interviews of the artists and the curator. very useful tools, and having the transcripts right there is good too! It seems that university students are involved in this - how did they get involved? Really good opportunity for them professionally. Am also excited about the school competition...

Hi Warren,

Thanks for having a look at the Education Resource and taking the time to comment.

COFA students became involved in the Venice Biennale Education Resource due to COFA's important role in the 2009 Venice Biennale - you can read more about that in Issue 3 of Incubate. The students selected had an impressive academic track record, were studying units in arts education at the postgraduate level and were nominated by senior COFA academic staff. Hopefully, we can expand the range of institutions and students in upcoming education resources.

The National Schools Project is exciting. School teachers and students from around Australia have the opportunity to upload new work and describe their exhibition through the curatorial statement. Soon, we will be announcing what the selected submission will receive - so stay tuned for that!

For some interesting insights into the Venice BIennale 2009, check out these videos.

Daniel Birnbaum explains what's behind the 2009 Venice Biennale, titled 'Making Worlds'

Exhibiting at the Venice Biennale can be a logistical nightmare, imagine attempting to float an entire house in the Venice canals. American artist Mike Bouchet ran into some troubles, when his floating house began to sink.
