Not Just a Brush

Not Just a Brush is a visual arts program for NSW public schools. The program includes teacher professional learning workshops and culminates in an art exhibition for Kindergarten to Year 6 students in a professional gallery at the end of 2021.

The theme for 2020-2021, 'Copycat or trailblazer', has evolved from a quote from artist Paul Gaugain who stated "In art one is either a plagiarist or a revolutionary".

For more information go to Not Just a Brush - Teacher professional learning page.

The operation of this program is contingent on advice provided by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with NSW Health. All activities will adhere to the DoE COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.
