As part of the Refill program, young people created some beautiful silhouettes by spraying food colouring around natural objects stuck to a page with blu-tack. Here are some of the finished artworks:
On January 29, 2019 – the second day of high school, new Year 7s young people from Miller Technology High School attended a big arts workshop day. This creative and fun day introduced them to their peers and teachers, CuriousWorks, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre! They took part in three art stations – Challenge Games with Sarah Emery, Tree-house construction with Howard Matthew and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dance exchange with Katie Leslie.
Refill students created an artwork that explored the shift of the sky from day to night using a silhouette drawing and a rotating split pin background.
Young people used their own star sign to create a DIY constellation projector using a paper cup and a torch. These created a beautiful starry night sky when we turned off the classroom lights and turned them on all at once.
Young people made paper lanterns by painting vegetable oil onto paper. This created a translucent effect that looked beautiful when illuminated with LED lights.
