VISITING ARTISTS

Geelong Grammar School's Visual Arts Department operates an Artist-in-Residence (AIR) programme, which provides our students with an insight into the working methods of professional practitioners. Two committed, practising artists are chosen annually to work within the AIR programme. The main aim of the programme is to increase the engagement of students and teachers in creative practice by giving them an opportunity to interact with and observe an artist at work. During their residence the artists give talks on his/her specialist area and present workshops. Since their studio is set up within the Art School for the duration of their stay, the artist's creative process can be witnessed first hand by both students and staff.
