These practical art classes give high school students the opportunity to practice, improve and expand their skill base by experimenting with a variety of media, stimulus and techniques under the guidance of highly respected practicing artist and educator, Jane Lander.
This term students will be focussing on human anatomy, muscular and skeletal studies drawing on renaissance practice morphing into more conceptual contemporary approaches to the subject as the term progresses. Students will be developing concepts in drawing using pencil and charcoal. Painting is also an option for those wishing to further explore this medium. There will be an opportunity to submit a piece for exhibition in the Arts for Health initiative at the John Hunter hospital in early 2023.
Students will take small risks often as they learn new skills and increase their confidence in the art making process. These classes are ideal for high school students keen to deepen their practice. There are also ample opportunities for HSC students to discuss HSC major work projects with Jane.
