Artist in Residence 2012

Ryan Kennedy - Artist in Residence at the School of Education (VIC), Australian Catholic University

'I felt that what we were doing was so symbolic to our last term at ACU, we were all weaving a part of ourselves together for the last time.'


Ryan F Kennedy is an interdisciplinary artist from New York, working with sculpture, installation, video and mixed media. Exhibited widely both solo and group form at home and abroad, for 2012 RFK has been touring Australia as an artist in residence and was asked to join the “Group Show” at Factory 49 in Sydney and was featured in “Cementa” 2013, an art festival in New South Wales. Click here to visit Ryan's website.

Ryan worked with final year pre-service teachers in October 2012 as part of their EDAR422/462 Creative Arts Education II unit. Ryan was based in the visual arts education studio at ACU and  led a practical based art project. Ryan's work with the students formed a significant component of their major assessment piece in which they developed an argument for the revivification of creative arts programs in primary schools. An open studio evening was organised so that staff and students at ACU could see the project unfold and listen to Ryan and the students talk about their work.

The progress of the collaborative installation can be watched by clicking here.

ivisual provides access not only to art appreciation & art practice curriculum documentation but also to a global visual arts educator social network. visual: the virtual arts classroom showcases the visual arts learning and investigations of pre-service teachers from Australian Catholic University as part of their training to become primary teachers. The curriculum documentation available on the site has been developed both by academics & by pre-service teachers, & is informed by state, national & international curriculum frameworks. Collaborative, participatory and focused resources are made available to visual arts educators around the world from which they can source ideas, share ideas and join in with a contemporary visual arts learning network.
