2019 ARTIST IN RESIDENCE RETROSPECTIVE

Artist in Residence Program

Each year SMC affords our students the opportunity to participate in an Artist in Residence Program, whereby local and international artists guide students through a series of industry-based workshops.

In 2019, we welcomed Ms Natalie Morawski, a past SMC alumna, and Fine Art and Leading Photography teacher from Melbourne Polytechnic, as our Resident Artist.

Natalie worked with our Year 10 Digital Photography students on a Colour Construct concept, with the use of Digital Photography. The concept was inspired by the college theme – Our School of Many Colours and students were invited to explore the theme through abstract colour elements in nature and human made objects.

Beside the digital photography skills, students also explored a range of Adobe Photoshop techniques to edit, enhance and refine their Colour Construct photographs.
