Zart Education is proud to sponsor the second Nurturing Creativity Conference Inspiration | Information | Art Practice and looks forward to welcoming art educators from Victoria and around the country on the 18th of September 2017.

Zart Education recognises the visual arts is vital in the cognitive and creative development of young people and valuing teachers and their role in this process, and as art practitioners, is our priority.

Zart is committed to providing quality professional learning opportunities for educators and have identified the need for a forum where teachers from all levels of schooling can come together to listen, share and network with colleagues.

The day will begin with a keynote address and Q & A session with internationally acclaimed artist, Patricia Piccinini. This will be followed by a morning and afternoon workshop program with artists, educators and industry professionals - designed to inspire, inform and invigorate your practice.

A day for Art Learning, Art Making and Art Fun.
