Workshops, Training and Residencies

I have a strong interest in delivering visual arts training and mentoring to both adults and young people. This is backed by my work outside of my art practice, where I have been working in adult education and training for over 7 years.  

I have also undertaken residencies at several schools. This has included working with the art teachers and students to develop artworks. I have also delivered printmaking and visual arts workshops in a variety of capacities and contexts.

Highlights over the past few years have included:

  • mentoring a local young artist as part of a public art project for Coorong District Council in 2018.
  • working with non-profit education organisation, Youth Inc., Adelaide to deliver visual arts training to young people in their alternative learning environment.
  • undertaking the Francis Street artist-in-residence program for the Adelaide City Library in 2016. 
  • being selected as the mentor in 2015 for Guildhouse’s Limber Up Mentorship program

"We had a great experience working with Josh as an artist in residency at St Peters Woodlands in 2016. His 2 week program was well structured and aimed well at the Year 6 class. The students enjoyed learning about printmaking and were excited to have an original piece to keep afterwards."

"Josh worked with our council to give one of our community trailers a much needed facelift. He communicated with us every step along the way and provided mentoring to a local young artist in the process. The fact that we are in a rural/remote area didn't stop Josh from delivering as promised!"
