On Wednesday 12 October, our Year 11 and 12 Art students visited the WA Art Gallery, where they attended a range of contemporary art exhibits.
Balancing Act and Common Ground featured Aboriginal artists presenting contemporary issues such as poverty, racism and identity. Students found these works particularly interesting and engaging. They were invited to write responses to prompt questions regarding one artwork that perked their interest.
Speech Pattern was another interesting exhibit that was both a critique and celebration of everyday life that students chose to respond to.
A walk into the city for some lunch and back to the art gallery for a quick tour upstairs and onto the rooftop space. It was a great day and the students will be able to use their experience to further their art skills.
