Seymour College, formerly Presbyterian Girls College is located in Adelaide South Australia only 15 minutes from the city. The Visual Arts, amongst many others, is a celebrated subject whereby students have the ability to not only study in a historic building but also exhibit their final work for exhibitions. Senior Stage 1 and 2 Visual Art students show their work within this space twice yearly as well as numerous other exhibitions that are held at Barr Smith House. Here are some examples of the variety of student work produced and the degree of critical thinking within their work.
There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
