Dear Class 11 Studio Arts, 

This week should see you progressing further with your art making. Please send in 1-2 progress photos. 

I'm looking  forward to see your work in person next week :)

In the garden, a white iris has joined the blue!

Dear Class 11s, 

Please continue with your art making. 

The Class 12s are displaying their finished pieces around the art room and these will be up for you to see when you return to the classroom in a few weeks time :)

I hope you're all enjoying the longer days and extra sunshine. In the garden, my tulips have finished blooming and it's now time for the iris' to have the limelight.

Dear Class 11 Studio Arts, 

Welcome to Term 4! As you are aware, you will be continuing the work you did in Term 3 and will begin creating your final piece. Having checked in with each of you at the end of last term or beginning of this term, it my understanding that you all have the required materials but if this is incorrect, please let me know and we can organise a pick up of resources. 

Please send me a visual (photo) or written note (brief note) about your progress by the end of the week so as I can provide support as required.

Dear Class 11 Studio Art, 

Well done on making it to the end of the term. I'm really pleased with the reports I've heard back about people's progress. I've feeling fairly confident that you have all progressed and will be ready to make your artworks next term. Between now and then, I hope you all have the opportunity to rest and rejuvenate. 

 

 In other news, all my tulips are in bloom!

Dear Class 11 Studio Art, 

By the end of this week you should ready to refine your ideas. I know some of you are already at this point, which is great. 

In other news, it's the first day of Spring, yay! I hope you all get a chance to go outside and enjoy the sunshine. This morning I was pleased to see that a yellow tulip is about to boom! 

Keep well,

~ Renee

Dear Class 11 Studio Arts, 

Spring is just a couple of days away, yippee!! One of my tulips has bloomed and I'm eagerly waiting to see the colours of the others. I bought a mixed pack of bulbs so I have no idea what they are going to be, which is kind of exciting! 

In regards to you work, please continue the fantastic progress I've been seeing via reports by some students. If you haven't sent me an email of your progress recently, please do so. This week you should be continuing to explore ideas and approaches to your theme. Some of you may be ready to refine ideas. The expectation is that by the end of this term you will have done all your exploration and planning, and will be ready to start making your artwork by the beginning of term 4, although some of you may want to begin your final piece before then. 

Please do not heistate to contact me if you have any questions: rspencer@lyss.vic.edu.au

Dear Class 11 Studio Art, 

This morning when I went outside to drink my coffee I was greeted by this beautiful kookaburra (to the right). There were a wonderful few moments where it an I just looked at each other. I hope that while you are working from home you all get to have quite moments engaging with nature like this. 

In regards to your Studio Art work, please continue to progress with your folio developmental and send me in a photo or two of your progress. I'm working towards having a phone chat with all of you to check-in ... I also imagine that as Studio Arts students you may have put a bit of extra time into the History of Art Main Lesson so I'm weighing that into my expectations of how far people have progressed. 

There is a resource pick up this Friday 27th of August, and I have had a delivery from Zart Art. Please let me know if you need anything and I'll do my best to make sure its available to you. 

~ Renee 

Monday 23rd August 2021

Dear Class 11 Studio Art, 

Same as last week: please continue to work on your developmental work and send me in a picture or two of your progress. You should be moving onto exploring your subject matter this week if you have not already done so. I will be attempting to have a phone call with each of you this week so as I give more personalised direction.

Outside of Studio Art requirements, if you haven't already seen it, I highly recommend you check out the Marsh Family Totally Fixed Where We Are.

Dear Class 11 Studio Art,

Dear Class 11 Studio Art, 

I hope you’re doing well.

In light of the lockdown being extended for another week, I’m requesting that everyone take a couple of photos of the work they have done at home and emails. The reason behind this request is so I can check in with how everyone is going and offer appropriate individualised support. Please send these photos to me by Friday 3pm. My email is: rspencer@lyss.vic.edu.au

Tuesday 10th August 2021

To help motivate you in creating your art from home, I'd like you to look at the following video clip of Top Arts 2021 that exhibits students work from 2020: Top Arts 2021 | Exhibition Introduction

Like I mentioned in this morning's zoom meeting, the overriding guideline for Studio Arts is to progress in folio development in whatever form you can. I understand that the work you can do is dependant upon what resources you have available, so you may need to improvise a little. E.g., if you don't have access to oil paints, use water colour, or if you don't have access to a digital camera, practice exploring compositions with your phone camera. 

Below is an overview of the studio process that you are following with indicators of where you should be at this point in the term (highlighted in grey) and where you are heading. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need guidance. 

If the lockdown continues into next I'll be requesting that you send in a few photos of what you've done at home so as I can give more specific guidance. 

All the best

~ Renee
