Award-winning quilt designer Sarah Fielke assisted girls in Years 8 to 11 with art patchwork, appliqué and quilt design in a series of extra-curricular Creative Arts workshops.
Sarah showed the girls a number of technical and mathematical processes that would better their patchwork, including precise stitching and spatial intelligence. The girls loved working with her and had produced their own sampler cushions by the end of the workshop series.
TAS assistant Miss Lily Ferres said she was nervous that blinded by stereotypes associated with the art form, not many would take the course. But she was thrilled to learn the workshop was booked out, and "even more thrilled to see the joy and enthusiasm when I joined," she said.
Last Thursday, Senior students from Wenona and Monte attended a presentation from world-leading University of the Arts London (UAL) to learn how to develop a successful portfolio.
It’s not every day you meet a bona fide collector and supporter of contemporary art. But our Year 11 Visual Arts students were lucky to meet John Kaldor AO on their recent excursion.
In the July holidays, 38 Creative Arts students from Years 10 and 11 headed off to Amsterdam, Paris and New York, accompanied by Ms Jalili, Ms McNally, Mr Newall and Ms Carson.
