Visual Arts Excursion to Bluescope Steelworks

On the 13th February (Year 10) and 14th February (Year 9) Visual Arts classes travelled to Bluescope Steelworks. The excursion involved looking at the Basic Oxygen Steelmaking Plant, Slab Caster, Hot Strip Mill or Plate Mill and area of the Port Kembla beach, enhancing the students’ study of Modernism and ideas of industrial design in Critical and Historical Studies. The experience also supported their artmaking where the boys drew preliminary urban landscape sketches for developing their portfolio of works, learning about pencil and charcoal drawing and assemblage technique to create original sculptures under the theme ‘Constructed Worlds’.
