Weekend Masterclass

Campbelltown Arts Centre and Kaldor Public Arts Projects are pleased to announce an exciting weekend Masterclass Program for enthusiastic, committed Year 10 Visual Arts and PDM students.

This inaugural program offers the opportunity for students to experience and respond to the 32nd Kaldor Public Art Project artist Jonathan Jones’ barrangal dyara (skin and bones) and Swarm, Branch Nebula’s 2016 Live Art project for Campbelltown Arts Centre. Taking place in Term 3, the program engages with place, history, language, and community, with a special focus on Indigenous history and culture.

Students will interact with artists Jonathan Jones and Branch Nebula (the collaborative practice of Lee Wilson and Mirabelle Wouters), explore artmaking processes through several site visits, skills development sessions, independent studio work, and tours of exhibitions and collections.

Participants will have the opportunity to create their own artworks and present their ideas to family, friends and members of the public on the opening day of barrangal dyara (skin and bones) at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney.

The Weekend Masterclass series comprises eight Saturday sessions, each three hours long. Participants in this exciting opportunity must be able to commit to the full 8-week program.
