On Wednesday, 19th April the VCE Unit 1 and 3 Studio Arts students from Northside Christian College had the opportunity to have a private guided tour through the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Victoria. The class were led through the complexities involved in curating an exhibition, designing an exhibition space and preservation practices.
Following this tour, students were inspired by the very best of 2017 VCE Studio Arts, at the annual Top Arts exhibition. This exhibition comprises of work selected from applicants across Victoria. The exhibition encompasses a range of media, including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, digital and mixed media. Students also delved deeper into their studies with a student folio viewing and VCE Studio Arts lecture.
