Our senior Visual Arts classes were invited to spend the final two days of Term 1 in Adelaide on the annual Year 12 Art/Design Trip. Once again, the participating students were exposed to a wide variety of eye-opening and thought-provoking creations.
The itinerary on the first day included visits to CDW Studios (visual effects school), UniSA’s City West campus (tertiary art/design courses), the 2018 SACE Art Show (Stage 2 art/design showcase exhibition), the SAHMRI Building (architecture tour) and The Jam Factory (art/craft/design centre).
Experiences on the second day included a guided tour of the ”Colours of Impressionism” exhibition (and a viewing of the priceless LC1 chaise) at the Art Gallery of South Australia, the Alessi/Georg Jensen displays at David Jones, KS Design (graphics studio), Bang & Olufsen (hi-tech electronics), Rapsimo (fashion) and Matt Blatt (furniture). Congratulations to this year’s students – they were well organised, engaged and enthusiastic throughout. Many thanks also to their parents and grandparents for their positive support of this valuable initiative.
