This program aims to offer a unique opportunity for all Regional Diocesan art students to be a part of a new collaborative experience with Sydney Catholic schools. Shining a light on important conversations while connecting creatives to learn new techniques and share their knowledge and their love of art in order to create collaborative artwork.

This program is designed to support individuals who are experiencing marginalization or disadvantage, by providing access to quality arts education and experiences. As part of this program, there will be Zoom workshops with a visual arts educator and artist in residency. The workshops will provide a unique and engaging opportunity for participants to develop their creative skills, connect with others, and explore the world of visual arts with a voice and a choice regarding the final project.

The role

Students will act as mentors during the session and you should be comfortable working in an online environment. In general, for a visual arts workshop, we are looking for students who:

  • Have a passion for visual arts: The ideal candidate will be someone who is eager to learn and grow as an artist/teacher, and who has a genuine interest in the visual arts.
  • Have the willingness to learn: The visual arts educator officer and artist in residency will be sharing their expertise and experience, so students should be open to learning and creating samples of new techniques and approaches.
  • Are open to feedback: The workshop will likely involve critiques and feedback on students' work, so they should be comfortable with receiving constructive criticism and using it to improve their skills.
  • Are collaborative: Collaborative projects and group discussions may be a part of the workshop, so students should be comfortable working with others and sharing their ideas and work samples that they have made to support the program.
  • Have good communication skills: Good communication skills can be important in an art workshop, both for receiving and giving feedback, as well as for collaborating on group projects.
