ABOUT the ArtsMMADD Website

ArtsMMADD is an on-line community of arts educators.
The website provides a platform to share stories (about what works and what doesn’t work, in our creative arts classrooms), as well as resources, ideas, weblinks and contacts.

OVer the past 30 years, Deirdre Russell-Bowie has written over 30 Creative Arts resource books for teachers. Most of the content of these is now on this website, along with resources designed and developed by other creative arts teachers.

This website, ArtsMMADD has also been created to provide support to teachers.

This community of arts educators is not restricted to practising arts educators,
pre-service teachers can also become a part of the community and establish a network whilst still studying.

Further explanations about many of the resources on this website and how to use them in the classroom, can be found in the book MMADD about the Arts:An Introduction to Primary Arts Education by Deirdre Russell-Bowie (3rd Edition, 2012), available from the publishers, Pearson Education Australia or from the University Co-op Bookshop at http://www.coop-bookshop.com.au/bookshop/search/combined?q=Russell-Bowie

The website has been funded by the Creative and Practical Arts Association, and designed by Associate Professor Deirdre Russell-Bowie (University of Western Sydney), Illustrations by Elsa Jara, ‘Arty’ character by Leeanne Fawle.

All resources have been developed by Deirdre Russell-Bowie as well as other creative arts teachers
