The Michaelis School of Fine Art and the Frank Joubert Art Centre (FJAC) have been running a series of Saturday morning workshops for art educators involved in Further Education and Training (FET) in Cape Town.

The workshops provide Michaelis lecturing staff and educators the opportunity to exchange knowledge, experience and skills in an informal setting. The series aims to provide a practical classroom application and an enriching experience for the educators.

"It is our way of increasing our visibility in the FET community and saying thank you to the FET community for all their hard work," said Jean Brundrit, the Michaelis lecturer who is driving this project. "Ultimately we benefit from their excellent teaching through the students that come to study with us at Michaelis."

Topics covered at the workshops and evening lectures so far include curating, experimental drawing, conceptual art and art therapy.
