Have just returned from Canberra where I attended the National Visual Art Education Conference (NVAEC) thanks to a RADF Out of Rounds grant. It was a great, informative time, with highlights including a talk by Ben Quilty and inspirational addresses by keynote speakers from the U.S. regarding using art in education; particularly its ability to evoke ideas that could potentially save the world. It was also great to see items from the NGA's collection on display and the visiting exhibition of pre-Raphaelite works from the TATE.
Came back exhausted, and today I tripped over the hose and landed on my slowly mending right arm. D'oh! It has probably set me back a bit, but hopefully not too much.
