Visual Arts, Term 3

June 24, 2024

What a productive semester we have had! Students have been developing their art skills using a wide range of mediums – oil/water/acrylic paints, collage, clay, board etchings, podcasts, music videos, surreal photographs…. and the list goes on!

Have a look at some of the fantastic work some of our seniors and juniors have created this Semester.

Year 7 etchings – Ollie Staines & Ben Garms

Left: Eason Cooper, Year 11 Visual Art – mixed media clay work – Marvel inspiration

Right: Teni Olatunbosun, Year 12 Visual Art – mixed media personal experience

Lily Blackmann, Year 11 Photography – reframing family connections

Ruby Snares, Year 11 Photography – Cyanotype exploration

James Tusch, Year 12 Photography – ‘I am a tapestry of everyone I have loved, and everywhere I have been’

Kaitlyn Cox, Year 11 Visual Arts – reflections on memories in the sheering shed with dad (1.2mx1.3mx1.2m) with light and audio

Our Year 10 Photography students also visited Aarwun Gallery this term. Aarwun Gallery is an excellent art gallery in Gold Creek. Students saw the current exhibition by Ted Lewis to see how painters have the same creative challenge of making images look realistic as photographers do when creating surreal constructed photographs in Photoshop. Students had a great time! We then went to Lake Ginninderra and took some beautiful photographs.

Year 10 Photography class out the front of Aarwun gallery with the creative satirical prime minister sculpture.

Looking forward to another fantastic semester coming!!!
