Becoming Art

Artists like Vincent van Gogh, Modigliani, Picasso, Michelangelo, Vermeer and Leonardo da Vinci continue to influence people today both for their art and the lives that they lived.

The works of contemporary artists like Ben Quilty, Patricia Piccini, Yayoi Kusuma and Georgia O’Keeffe are also creative forces to be reckoned with.

Our Year 10 Visual Art students were assigned the difficult task of selecting one influential artist and exploring their work and legacy. As part of their studies, the students created a ceramic bust of the artist, recreated one of their works as a painting and used face and body paint to recreate an artwork on a live model.

The students worked intensely on each of the designated activities to produce some incredible works, many of which will be shown at the upcoming exhibition in the Art Space of the Clive James Library and Service Centre in Kogarah.
