My name is Christine Healey. I am an experienced Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) practitioner and gallery and museum educator. I am the current vice-president of the museum and gallery educator special interest group Education Network Victoria (ENVI).

Having initially trained in Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) at Brooklyn Museum, New York (2012), I have undertaken two fellowships at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston. Firstly as a Hugh Rogers Fellow (2013), then as a guest of Independent Schools Victoria (2016).

I am very proud to have introduced Visual Thinking Strategies and the VTS school partnerships into Australian contexts whilst working as Education Manager at Heide Museum of Modern Art.
