The Year 11 Pulse Perspectives excursion was a great opportunity to appreciate and draw inspiration from past Year 12 students’ final work for the subject of Visual Art. We viewed an array of different styles and mediums, which assisted in expanding our ideas for pieces going forward and encouraged us to get out of our comfort zones.
We spent our time in Perth’s cultural precinct in Northbridge, where we had morning tea, lunch and caught up with the Year 11 Bunbury Catholic College (BCC) art students.
At The Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA) we visited the 2021 Pulse Perspectives exhibition, and we also got to check out the rest of the gallery and an interactive area where you experiment with straw and wool.
The excursion helped us form a bond with the BCC art students where we can compare our practical work, written work and the ideas we have. Viewing the Pulse Perspectives exhibition enhanced our written work and provided insight into writing artist statements. Overall, the pieces were fantastic in execution and meaning, and will definitely contribute to not only the practical elements of art but also the written elements.
