Ex-student back to help with HSC Art

At the end of last term, ex-GTHS student, Michael Wong payed our current Yr12 Visual Arts students a visit offering his experiences, advice and mentoring some of them. He gave a brief talk to the class before discussing the needs and expectations of students one-on-one and answering some of their questions.

Visual Arts HSC candiates of 2015 have realised the work and dedication required to achieve well resolved Bodies of Work. In less than 2 months they will have to submit their work and then focus their time on art history and art criticism for the remainder of the term in preparation for the written component of the course.

It was pleasing to see most of the students take time out of their school break to continue working of their artmaking during both weeks of the schools holiday. They took advantage of working over a longer period of time in one sitting without the distractions of bell times and class changes. The students still have a little way to go but their progress and extra effort to complete their work to a standard of which they are happy with means that they will not break down and panic for running out of time. The students are aware of their time frame. We have developed time management strategies and goal setting to allow this to happen with ease.

“Year 12 Visual Arts has enabled to generate a wide range of both creative and visual concepts as well exploring new ideas. It has also helped me to perceive the artworld from a different perspective.
I am currently studying Landscape Architecture at UTS, moreover, the course works alongside with Architecture for the first year; seeing that both Landscape Architecture and Architecture have very similar disciplines. Architecture does involve a lot critical thinking in a creative manner and had a lot to do similarly with the concepts and case studies I previously studied in Visual Arts in both year 11 & 12. I wish this year’s Year 12 Visual Arts class very best with their studies and their major work.”
