Artists in the making

Senior Visual Arts students enjoyed a perfect day studying the landscape at Bundanon on 21 February 2017.

Students toured the homestead and Arthur Boyd’s studio. The students also participated in a drawing workshop and created a ‘super panorama’ of the magnificent scenery including Pulpit Rock- which featured in many of Arthur Boyd’s landscapes.
