About the Teacher as Art-maker Project (TAP)
The Teacher as Artmaker Project (TAP) is a significant research initiative conducted at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE). Visual Art teachers are somewhat unique amongst the teaching fraternity in that they not only teach, but they must also practice what they preach. Many wish to maintain a private art practice in partnership with quality teaching; in fact, a lot of art teachers believe that their own art making is critical to ‘quality teaching’. However, we all know that this is not an easy task.
