Year 9 Art students are being commissioned to design and produce works of art for staff across the school. Inspired by a recent exhibition at Caloundra Gallery by Dr Kym Rodgers, our artist in residence, staff were approached as experts in their field to provide knowledge, based on fact and science, as a platform for students to work from. Upon completion of their own street cones, the works would be placed around the school daily using the urban space as it’s gallery. The works would capture people-off-guard as part of their day-to-day experience. The designs convey very powerful information supplied by the experts to inform, record, forbid and direct us. This week students had the opportunity to consult with staff about their designs. It was exciting to see the connection between staff and student, and the realisation by both that art has a powerful voice.\
