Year 10 Visual Arts Drawing Incursion – Permission Slip

The Science of Pine by Tania Mason

Community installation 'The Science of Pine' by Tania Mason

In support of the Visual Arts curriculum, Year 10 Visual Arts students will be attending two drawing incursion sessions run by Australian artist Tania Mason. Mason is an illustrator who currently works in the local area and has designed community installation ‘The Science of Pine’, a private commission for a public walk through area in Bondi Junction.

In the two sessions, students will develop skills in fundamental drawing techniques; watercolour, gouache, wax resist, charcoal and graphite drawing. All samples and artworks created in the incursion will be used as student works in the ‘Land Sea Air’ unit for Semester 2, as students document local flora and fauna from the Waverley area to form a visual inventory of our local environment.

The sessions will be held on the College Campus in the Visual Arts rooms. All materials will be provided.
