These technical and conceptual skills are further cemented by the numerous co-curricular programmes offered by the Visual Arts Department. The Studio Art Academy runs before school and offers students the opportunity to experiment, play and discover more in their artmaking practice. Art After Hours is a program where students visit current exhibitions at local galleries. This is a time where students get to engage with works in the flesh to gain a deeper understanding of artworks and the intention of artists. Further to this, students in Years 7–9 have whole year group excursions to prominent Sydney galleries including the Art Gallery of NSW.
