Artist in Residence Program – 2017 Adrian Ward Self Portraiture

In 2017, we will run the Artist in Residence program (incursion) with the Year 5 students.

We first successfully ran our first Artist in Residence program with the Year 5 students in 2015. The results and experience, for all students, was amazing and this experience was identified as a vital component and extension to our Visual Arts Program at Karoo.

We will be doing an amazing Student Self Portraiture incursion where the students will use clay to create a sculpture. This will run for all of Term 3 (10 weeks).

The incursion will cover Life Drawing and related art history as part of the incursion. Each week students will be guided through the process of creating the artwork, starting with drawing, and then through the process of creating their own sculpture.

Students will develop skills, techniques and knowledge and enjoy an amazing creative experience.
