Abstract: 

Multi-age education, characterised by the intentional grouping of students from multiple grade levels, is receiving growing attention in Australia. Despite this growth, the subject has rarely been examined in art education. This study characterises qualities of multi-age art instruction through the collection of observations and interviews with a selected primary multi-age art specialist teacher. The results detail suggested organisational changes that may be necessary when structuring multi-age art curricula, as well as the effective use of thematic instruction and co-operative learning in the multi-age art classroom. The article concludes with implications for organising multi-age art education at other school sites.
