Art Extension Workshops
The Visual Arts Department is now running Art Extension Workshops every Term whereby our art students are given an opportunity to extend their skills in a smaller group setting. Our first workshop with Mrs Mathews and Mrs Wilson was a success which Year Ten art students able to experience and explore the medium of oil paint in preparation for further developing their knowledge next year.

Sandra Bryans Sewanista Fashion Workshops

Sandra Bryans from Sewanista Fashion Workshops has been in this week working with the Year 12 Certificate II Applied Fashion Design and Technology students. She has been demonstrating to the Year 12 students the process of how sewing patterns are created in the fashion industry. The students have begun to learn how a sketch can be turned into a garment via a pattern (template). They will be using these skills to create their own patterns for the designs they have been creating this term.

Sandra Bryans runs free style sewing classes from her studio in Malaga.
