ONE DAY WORKSHOP: Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 August

After the extremely successful 2023 Bush studio program, we are thrilled to offer Bush studio again in 2024. 

Bush studio is a ONE-day workshop consisting of TWO classes, one for students in Stage 2 and one for students in Stage 3. To meet demand the program will be offered on two separate days. 

Maximum 8 students per school per stage per day. 

Facilitator: To be confirmed

Teachers are NOT required to attend the workshop.

Students are invited to spend the day immersed in, and be inspired by, the unique urban bushland setting of the Field of Mars Reserve to produce a range of mixed-media artworks.

Students will be introduced to the work of Australian artists to gain a rich source of ideas and will study the elements and principles of design to gain a deeper understanding of how to create interesting and engaging artworks. An online gallery at the end of the program provides a platform for studetns to showcase their refined artworks and artmaking process. 

Media used will include drawing, painting, printing, mixed media, textiles and collage. 

This one-day workshop is designed to extend participants' skills and artmaking experiences beyond the classroom.

Teachers are encouraged to extend this opportunity to students who display a higher level of engagement in visual arts.

Teachers or parents will need to drop off and pick up the students to and from the Field of Mars Reserve on the day.
