DP Visual Arts exhibition visit

Yesterday, the Year 12 DP Visual Arts students went on a field trip to the Fundacao Arte e Cultura in Luanda to see an exhibition by local Angolan artist, Gracia Ferreira.

The artist was there to talk to the students about her artwork. They learned that she studied fine arts in Luanda. She has enjoyed travelling with her exhibitions and this inspires many of the ideas for her paintings. Ferreira has exhibited in countries such as Cuba, Cabo Verde, Mozambique and Portugal.

The students were very fortunate as Ferreira also facilitated a workshop for them. She asked them to create a response to her work using canvas and acrylic paints and working collaboratively in groups.

The students really enjoyed this visit and we hope to go back to the Fundacao Arte e Cultura in November for the next exhibition!

      Hi Ms Katy

      Thanks for your comment. The students have brought the canvases back to LIS to complete. They can then be displayed at school before they go back to the Fundacao Arte e Cultura to be exhibited there too!
