ARTS CAMP

Thirty students ranging from Years 9 – 12 accompanied by Miss Sorci, Mrs Mulligan and Mr White set off for Point Walter on Friday afternoon for the College’s bi-annual Art Camp. Saturday was a packed day as the group travelled to Fremantle to get a taste of all of the arts and culture on offer. Beginning with a visit to the Moores Gallery, the students viewed artwork by an art collective then had a Q&A with some group members. Questions about exhibition artwork and how to get into a collective were answered. The group then walked to the PS Art Space where they had morning tea and were treated to an exclusive artist talk and tour by resident artist Clyde McGill. His abstracted works were put into greater context and allowed the students to engage with the complex meaning and symbolism of his work.


We then set off for the Fremantle Markets where the best of Fremantle’s culture can be experienced. The students ate lunch and watched buskers dance, mime and perform comedy. From here we travelled to the Fremantle Arts Centre to see Revealed, an exhibition of Contemporary Indigenous Art from all over WA. The students also enjoyed watching the Amy Shark sound check! The pottery house of the Fremantle Arts Centre was open and students were invited to make a pinch pot. The pinch pots will be part of a City of Fremantle Festival event where they will be fired on the beach as part of a live firing performance.


After all of this excitement it was time for some down time, we travelled to Bathers Beach and sat by the coast to watch the sun set. Dinner was at Ciccerello’s in the upstairs function room that ended a great day full of art, stories and culture.


On Sunday, contemporary artist Andy Quilty joined us for a half-day drawing workshop. Andy began with an artist talk and explained his career and how he came to working as a professional artist. He also showed students photographs of his art over the years so that they could get a scope of the evolution of his practice. They then began with timed pencil drawing exercises to throw them out of their comfort zones. This lead through to charcoal and the students learning a new technique of ‘erasing’ the charcoal to make the drawing. Some fantastic work was made!


Well done everyone who attended for your enthusiasm, manners and great attitudes.


We would like to thank Mr White for giving up his weekend to spend with us and his amazing barista skills! Thank you, all the parents who sent their students along, we had a great time and hope you enjoy the photographs from the weekend.
