Year 11 Visual Arts students attended an all day workshop on Cockatoo Island recently, with well known artist Michael Herron. 
Herron’s experience and expertise inspired the students as they learned about an artist’s practice of developing ways of observing what is around them through a series of drawings and thumbnails. 
After loosening up and exercising their eyes and hands, students produced two sustained works employing some of the strategies and techniques they learned through Herron’s demonstrations. 
As well as this practical experience, students carried on into the city seeking out further evidence of the discarded materialist aspects of human life through a photographic exploration, which will also inform their current body of work.
