Ambitious young artists explore street art

2022 has kicked off to a very creative start in Visual Arts.

“Students have embraced their time back in the studios after a disrupted two years of learning,” said Director of Art and Design Drew Bickford.

“Working in a shared, communal environment is key to a successful studio practice, and our Year 10 Visual Arts cohort are enjoying this experience with their latest unit on Street Art. 

“This unit encourages our young artists to be ambitious in their use of scale and make bold statement works that mirror the individual confidence of street artists.

“Although only in the early stages, these works are showing great promise and some of the designs mix humour, political commentary, personal symbolism and great irreverence.

“Creative learning is one of the most stimulating experiences students enjoy each day at IGS and our students’ works are a testament to this.”
