Painting with Intensity and Passion

In Semester One, I had the honour of teaching an enthusiastic group of Year 10 students who were keen to learn all about Art.

They say a picture tells a thousand words and this was certainly the case with the accompanying photos that demonstrate the talent, intensity and passion of these young artists who explored their own portraits through painting, printmaking and drawing techniques.
