Art Spark

Devonport Regional Gallery’s after-school art program shines a bright light on creativity!

Set in the Gallery, Art Spark offers a unique experience for Primary and Secondary students wishing to further their creative thinking, and develop an appreciation of the visual arts. The workshops are presented by a practising artist who is able to bring out each participant’s unique style and interests.

Little Aesthetics: What is a landscape?

What images come to mind when you think of the Tasmanian landscape? Is it urban, natural or both?

In this combined floor talk and workshop, students will explore what 'landscape' means to them and how visual artists have interpreted the landscape in their works.

Students will consider traditional examples in contrast to contemporary representations of the Australian landscape through the Ten Days on the Island exhibition, A decolonial geographic, and create their own landscape collage using paper-based materials.
