Despite the wild weather, on Thursday 5 November, the Year 10 Art Explorations class ventured into Melbourne to view works at the National Gallery of Victoria – International, on St Kilda road. The students were in awe of the fine detail and techniques of painters from the 15th century and saw a huge contrast in the iconic graffiti works in Hosier Lane. Having completed their own paintings this semester, it was a valuable experience to see examples of similar techniques, yet vastly different subject matter. The famous water wall, stained glass ceiling and different levels of the gallery lead us all on a timeline of art, looking at how work is displayed in different ways and questioning “What make an artwork art?”.
