“Learning through Landscapes”
An exhibition by students from Elizabeth Macarthur High School
Within this exhibition, students from Elizabeth Macarthur High school have explored and developed a diversity of unique art making practices. Their works explore their journey with a variety of mediums as a Visual Arts student from Year 8 through to Year 11.
Watercolours, oil pastels, acrylic paint and Photoshop have all played a part in the students creation of these works. Many of the Year 11 works explore mark making with an array of materials, including biro, watercolour and ink. They have examined landscape painting as well as Photography and explored ways of creating texture and depth within their work.
Year 8 have studied Howard Arkley’s use of pattern and colour within his practice and explore this in their own “Arkley Inspired” images. Year 10 have been studying Kyle Thompson and Anselm Kiefer, challenging their use of digital manipulation and texture in the creation of their own surrealist images.
This exhibition brings together the innovative and creative practices currently being taught in the high school curriculum at Elizabeth Macarthur High School, referencing well known and upcoming artists, with a vibrant display of student works, which capture the essence of “Landscape”.
