On Tuesday 11th February, Year 11 Art excursion to the Botanic Gardens. Although it was a very hot and humid afternoon, our Year 11 students readily engaged in drawing, photographing and experimenting with different ways to engage and document the many varied opportunities for inspiration this location provides. A huge thank you to the Botanic Gardens Cafe who kindly supplied large jugs of iced water to keep our students hydrated and cool, while they collated their ideas at the cafe's tables.
On Wednesday 12th February, Year 10 Art Excursion to the Cairns Esplanade Sculpture Walk. Students were excited to have the opportunity to explore the scale, materials, surfaces and relationship of each sculpture to its chosen location. They identified and explored the use of symbols, motifs and abstraction of forms and gathered ideas and inspiration for their own sculptural works.
