Christine Porter: teacher

With her practice having been forged in the dusty isolation of western Queensland, Christine believes that the most truthful artwork can only be developed through the integrity of the artist’s own steps. The learning experiences she has developed  encourage the independent artist, especially for those living in rural and remote areas. 

Christine’s students are adults and children who learn about general art, drawing, painting, printmaking. She also teaches about professionalism in the industry for emerging and established artists.
She is a registered teacher in Qld and holds appropriate Working With Children Certificate in NSW and Qld.
She has taught in the classroom, in universities and through her own workshops.
She’s had 40 years industry experience as practitioner and art-businessperson, has a Bachelor of Visual Arts from SCU and 30 years with Toastmasters International.
