Fairweather Art Group

Fairweather Art Group 2020.png
The Fairweather Art Group is named after the innovative and eccentric artist Ian Fairweather who lived and worked in South East Queensland in the latter part of his career.

This is a voluntary activity held Wednesday afternoons and is an opportunity for all art students to stay back and work on school artworks, art assignments or do their own extension work. The art staff are available to supervise and assist but students should bring their own work. There are no formal art lessons, but teachers are in attendance to help students with their work. It is an excellent opportunity for students to extend themselves and work with like-minded fellow art students.

Parents of current Art students have received an Edsmart slip to give permission for students to attend. By giving permission students do not have to attend every week but can participate whenever they wish, one response covers the student for the year. Fairweather Art Group has been very popular with our art students and I encourage them to attend and make the most of the opportunity. Please contact me if you have any queries.

The school also looks for opportunities to enter students to work in a range of local and national competitions.
