cbd art classroom bringing the outside in In the first semester, Art and Design classes were lucky to attend a number of exhibitions within easy walking distance of the College. Art and Design Teacher Lindy Neilson explained that having a lesson in an actual gallery and getting out of the classroom gives realism and relevance to the subject. It also establishes a dynamic and meaningful context to learning as well as increasing student engagement and motivation. “It is important that students gain an understanding of contemporary art which reflects their world now. By visiting exhibitions, students can see the potential for a career in the arts, not only as an artist, but as an arts writer or curator for example,” she said.
exhibitions Students have attended the following exhibtions in the CBD: Helpman academy graduate exhibition, torrens parade ground.
“The College location, in the heart of Adelaide City, allows with ease to ‘bring the outside in’. This semester, Year 11 art students have focused on the CBD and on the cityscape and grids.
parklands art prize, adelaide festival thearte.
“All around the city, we tend to structure and organise things in our environment, placing them into straight lines and grids. Grids are the dominating feature in the CBD and this project encouraged students to recognise the different types, from windows, to the reflections, to street maps and so on.”

Sophie chen After the excursions to the city and taking photos with the project theme of ‘grids’, I was inspired to create an illustration that explored the different applications of grids in city architecture. The illustration was created on the iPad using the Paper application, as the simple tools were effective at replicating the glass texture of the windows. With the photos that were taken on the excursion, I was interested in exploring different perspectives.
shaye duong This piece is inspired by the work of contemporary Australian artist, Del Kathryn Barton, in the ‘Dark Heart’ exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia. With the use of her style and techniques, I have drawn the contour lines of a woman’s face in a loose way that produces a modern and minimalistic look. Also typical to the style of the artist’s work, I have included vibrant and playful colours with the use of pattern work in the background. The artist often uses women and nature as focal points of her work, so my aim was to reflect this in my piece.

LINDY NEILSON Lindy is a valued and accomplished member of the teaching staff at Eynesbury Senior College. Lindy has been teaching Art and Design at the College for the last seven years and brings over 20 years of experience to the role. She has been a SACE Visual Arts marker, SACE subject advisory panel member as well as providing assistance to the Art Gallery of South Australia in the development of their art education resources.

worked with the Adelaide Festival to produce the educational resource for ‘Worlds in Collision,’ which featured diverse and inspiring works from nine international artists across four sites. Lindy has a particular interest in art writing and has had a long involvement in community arts projects and exhibitions. As a curator, Lindy created ‘Wolfgang Sievers…the dignity of labour’ shown at the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, UniSA. It celebrated the work of one of Australia’s finest modernist photographers and human rights advocates. Sievers’ work combines a strong aesthetic with a sense of social justice, and continues to inspire Lindy. Lindy hopes her students will gain an appreciation of their visual world and an understanding of the role of art and design in making the world a better place.

behind the counter Year 11 student, Katelynn Gallant, undertook a special project as part of her SACE Stage 1 Creative Arts course. “Katelynn has technical skills in digital drawing and holding an exhibition was an opportunity to showcase Katelynn’s abilities and share her work with the school community,” explained Lindy Neilson. Katelynn describes growing up with anime and cartoonygoodness in animated and novel-form. “The way I draw is in some ways a combination or brew of the things I’ve grown up with and enjoy to this day,” said Katelynn. “My work in the exhibition, is about my characters, for the most part- but I have also focused on what I believe is best for me to draw and incorporate my abilities into artworks that tell a story.” “I wanted to show a glimpse into one of the worlds that I’ve made, except I thought I’d be experimental and use some of my more minor characters, who I had not explored in depth,” said Katelynn. Over 30 people attended the special viewing on June 12 and a limited edition comic created for the event proved so popular that there wasn’t a copy left at the end of the night!

social justice group hero day! In term 2, the Social Justice Group (SJG) held ‘Hero Day’ to raise awareness and funds for homelessness and local charity, the Hutt Street Centre. “The SJG looks at issues within our society, and we felt that homelessness was one of the issues that is
misunderstood,” said Andie Carlson, SJG Project Leader. “The city based Hutt Street Centre do important work to confront the causes and consequences of homelessness by preventing it at the source, addressing its manifestations, and by reducing its reoccurrence. This is why we thought this charity was deserving of our support.” “The Centre provides a safe place of hope, warmth and belonging, as well as essential and professional services to meet the needs of homeless and vulnerable people in the inner city of Adelaide,” explained Andie.
“The people who use the services of Pictured: The Super Trio- John Warren, Remy Colmer and David Sanderson. Selina Nguyen as Catwoman.
