Visual arts gifted and talented program

The Gifted and Talented Visual Arts Program is entering it's 10th year with it's success made possible through club grant funding. The program aims to provide extra-curricular opportunities to students who display a strong ability in Visual Arts. Solidly centred around future focused teaching and learning, funds provided allow us to offer extension opportunities to our curious and powerful learners. We run after school art workshops with expert teachers to develop students art making skills, using specialist materials and sophisticated techniques. Further extension opportunities are provided in class to accelerate student’s learning, and encourage critical and creative thinking. In addition, students are exposed to art in different contexts through incursions with visiting contemporary artist and excursions to gallery spaces. Students also are given opportunities to participate in artist talks and workshops. Senior students have attended talks by Australian Artists Adam Hills, Abdul Abdullah, Ben Quilty and Photographer Alex Kass
