Arts students camp at Cockatoo Island
A group of Visual Arts and Photography students from Brisbane Water Secondary College took part in the College's annual combined campus Art Camp.
For the camp, students from Years 8 to 10 visited to Sydney's Cockatoo Island for a three-day excursion of art-making, theory and art immersion.
According to Woy Woy campus principal Ms Rebecca Cooper, the camp was packed with cultural experiences and art activities.
"Day one involved getting to the island which is located in Sydney Harbour," she said.
"On arrival, we were treated to a tour of the island and learnt about its history and infamous ghosts.
"The students went to the camp kitchen for a barbecue dinner and art activities before heading to one of the historic houses on top of the island to enjoy a movie.
"Day two started with a sunrise painting and drawing activity overlooking the Sydney harbour bridge.
"It was bitterly cold and a little too early for some sleepy heads but I think that everyone appreciated the experience.
"We spent the day in the city visiting the Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery, the State Library and the Art Gallery of NSW.
"The evening was spent aboard the Sydney Show Boat enjoying a buffet dinner and enjoying the visual display from the 2019 Vivid Festival.
"Our final day was filled with art making with many students choosing to take some time to reflect on their experiences and channel them into their practice," Ms Cooper said.
