street art bags

Students have studied the role of street art and its place within the established artworld in the 21st Century. Focus in this artwork has been on the creation of ‘stencil’ prints and posters. Using stencil art and graphic design as inspiration, students have created their own surrealist style logos, where the words do not define the pictures and the pictures do not define the words.

pots that tell stories

Pots that Tell Stories is a unit inspired by the Hermannsburg Potters group from Central Australia. The Aboriginal women in this highly acclaimed potting group depict local culture and wildlife from around Hermannsburg.

The pots by Hayley Coulthard, Beth Inkamala, Rahel Ungwanaka, Lindy Rontji, Judith Inkamala and Rona Rubuntjase depict stories; some of which are about flora and fauna, tourism, a love of footy and the influence of Albert Namatjira, a former member of the community who is loved and respected by all.

The History topic, Australia as a Nation allowed for discussion and investigation about Australia’s natural and built environment as well as an exploration of contemporary issues such as refugees and asylum seekers.
