Artists gain places in prestigious art school course
Two Year 11 Visual Art students from Arden were accepted into the 2016 National Art School’s Intensive Studio Practice Course. This is an exciting opportunity for the students as the course is designed to enrich and extend their study within a choice of seven specialised disciplines. The course is targeted at students who are seeking to further their studies in Visual Arts to a tertiary level. The students’ success at this course will be recorded on their HSC and their work will be formally assessed by National Art School staff.
The budding artists attended studio workshops in the July 2016 holidays and continued to extend their Visual Arts practice in the October holidays, at the National Art School. They were involved in the preparation of a formal exhibition of their body
of work upon completion of the course. Rachael Egan studied Life Drawing while Catherine McCartney chose Ceramics.
