My proposal is to create a scenic art resource to use as a teaching tool outside of the workshops and an online community for discussion and sharing of learning.
What will I learn from this project?
The project will help me to identify gaps in my knowledge
By creating a database this will allow me to identify materials, techniques and tools that I’ve not come across before. Like the students I can then get familiar in the same may they will. If a product catches my eye or is recommended by a fellow professional, I can buy it for the dept and the students and I can explore its properties. This will make me a better, well rounded teacher.
