Aboriginal art workshop


Sheila Humphries, an internationally acclaimed Nyoongar artist, visited the College in June. She ran an art workshop and spoke to the Year 11 & 12 Visual Art students. She talked about her experience growing up as one of the Stolen Generation and the journey to a successful and rewarding career as an artist.

Sheila showed her work to the students and taught them about the meaning of the symbols used in Indigenous Art. She demonstrated how she composes artworks and taught them traditional dot painting techniques. The students really enjoyed the experience and found the workshop both meaningful and impactful.
