It will be interesting to see what comes of this symposium.

I find it Ironic in that the art world has been dominated by men through the history of the west.

Nevertheless, it is a tragedy if young boys, and their parents, don’t see art as a viable subject for the reason that it does not fit with the stereotypical image of what a male should do.

Boys’ Art Education Symposium Collaborate – Innovate

Breaking the Stereotype II
Boys’ Art Education Symposium 2016, June 29th to July 1st

The theme of the symposium is ‘Collaborate – Innovate”. This exciting symposium will challenge the notion of boys’ disengagement in secondary school Visual Arts; and seek to promote boys’ art education in a healthy and meaningful way. The theme aims to explore the inquiry and framing of the complex issues faced by art educators today; including the pedagogies and technologies that facilitate boys’ creative needs.

This symposium will be celebrating the achievements of boys’ in visual arts through presentations, artist’s talks, gallery visits, workshops and case studies. We welcome submissions from educators and researchers to peer review papers, to be presented to an audience of secondary art educators, pre-service educators, school leaders and policy makers.
