Bush studio visual arts camp

Stage 4 visual arts camp

Thursday 7th November - Friday 8th November 2024

Maximum 4 students per school.

20 particpants only.

Bush Studio visual arts camp provides an opportunity for public school students in Years 7 and 8 to be involved in an engaging, challenging and stimulating visual arts program led by an experienced visual arts teacher. 

The aim of the camp is to provide students with an opportunity to observe, interpret and respond to their immediate environment at  Bobbin Head in the Ku-ring-gai National Park. Students will learn strategies to explore their immediate experience of the landscape to create preliminary works as departure points for resolved studio-based artworks.

Bushwalking and canoeing in the Ku-ring-gai National Park will provide exciting opportunities for students to directly observe and visually document the subtle nuances of the natural environment using drawing and mixed media. Students will investigate ways to create sculptural works using natural found objects and use these sculptures to facilitate the making of drawings and monoprints.

The program will culminate in an exhibition for families, friends and teachers.

This year Sia Cox is returing as the artist in residence. Sia is a soft sculpture artist who uses a mix of techniques and textiles to create amazing artworks.  Sia draws her inspiration from the community and nature, and is a wondeful inspiration to students who are starting on their art journey.
