Visual Arts teachers in the Far South are invited to participate in a professional learning opportunity on Friday 1st December 2017.

Eden Marine High School will host the VADEA Regional Inspire & Indulge Far South professional learning day for visual arts teachers in regional areas for 2017. This is an opportunity to exchange resources, new ideas, programs and learning strategies for teaching Visual Arts, Visual Design and Photographic and Digital Media.

Participants will also have the option to attend the opening of the Justene Williams exhibition The Curtain Breathed Deeply at Bega Valley Regional Gallery.


The focus of the Regional Inspire & Indulge professional learning program is Stage 4 to Stage 6 Visual Arts, Visual Design, Photography and Digital Media. The program format will include a series of presentations by Wendy Ramsay VADEA Co-President Professional Learning; Yvonne Duke VADEA Regional Project Officer; James Ferguson Visual Arts & Photography Teacher, Eden Marine High School; Breony Delforce Visual Arts Teacher, Bega High School; Michele Anuyahong Relieving HT CAPA, Batemans Bay High School; Lin Schroder Visual Arts and Photography Teacher, Narooma High School; Caitlin McGrath Relieving HT CAPA, Ulladulla High School; Sharon Mc Eachern HT CAPA, Albury High School and artist Lucy Culliton.

Presentations will address the dissemination of knowledge, understanding and skills in the making and the critical and historical study of visual arts informed by practice, the conceptual framework and the frames.

Each participant is requested to bring a unit of work, program overview or resources to share with colleagues. We invite participants to focus on innovative ways they address the content areas of practice, conceptual framework and the frames.


VADEA Regional Indulge is an event aimed at bringing VADEA members together to ‘indulge’ in an informal afternoon of art, listen to specialist speakers and make new professional contacts in a collegial atmosphere.

The Indulge program will include artist presentation followed by Q&A session with artist Lucy Culliton at Eden Marine High School and the option to attend the opening of the
Justene Williams exhibition The Curtain Breathed Deeply at the Bega Valley Regional Gallery, Zingel Place, Bega.

Lucy Culliton’s paintings are inspired by her country life on her property in the Monaro district of NSW.

….a gutsy figurative expressionist painter with a strong romantic disposition… Sacha Grishin, Art historian and critic

…that rare phenomenon: a natural painter…an astute observer of the familiar and seemingly insignificant, Lucy offers the viewer an incisive but caring and often quirky view of the world around her…John Mc Donald, Art Critic.
