Professional Learning at MONA
+ Hadley's Art Prize RESOURCE
Art Teachers from all over Tasmania participated in the MONA Professional Learning event in March 2018.

Participants indulged in complex discussions about the current and future states of Arts Education in Tasmania and viewed exciting resources, such as: The Hadley's Art Prize Education Kit.

"Aligned with the Australian Curriculum, it has been developed by art education specialists in partnership with the Hadley’s Art Prize curator, and is endorsed by Art Education Australia, the peak national professional association that supports and promotes art education at all levels within Australia. Schools groups are encouraged to use the Education Kit and visit the finalists’ exhibition." - Hadley's Art Prize
