Transition: Exchange establishing a visual arts practice based on personal pedagogy

Stevens, Karen J. (2015) Transition: Exchange establishing a visual arts practice based on personal pedagogy. Masters by Research by Creative Works, Queensland University of Technology.


There is a perceived tension in the relationship between the roles of art teacher and artist that led to the question: can an art teacher use their professional training and experience to establish an authentic artistic identity? This self-study tracked and analysed how the process of making her own art enabled an art teacher to also identify as an artist.

Drawing on Lamina, the public exhibition of her multimedia artworks, the final exegesis proposes five conditions for art teachers in developing their own art practice: developing an identity as artist, using time and space mindfully, tolerating uncertainty, mentoring, and privileging the process.
