The Careers Department have delivered engaging Art talks from Mary Blue, and successfully placed Year 13 pupils at The Geelong College

Day of Workshops and an Enrichment talk with visiting visual artist, Mary Blue

Mary visited the Art Department to talk to a Year 9 Art class and to Year 12 International Baccalaureate Art pupils.

Mary talked about the artists who influence her work on painting water and waves; then gave a watercolour demonstration to facilitate both year groups being able to enjoy and practice what they had learnt from Mary in painting their own watercolours of crashing waves.

For the Year 13 Enrichment Talk, Mary talked about ‘The Artists’ Perspective on Creative Thinking and the Creative Economy’.
