Artist in Residence

Bringing Arts and Science together

Caroline Barrett’s Artist in Residence program is focused on the theme of Biodiversity in Bayside – fostering appreciation and connection with the local area of Bayside’s natural environment.

Caroline has worked with Year 3 students to encourage creative study of plants, birds and animals, nurturing appreciation of our local and global environment. The concept has aimed to bring arts and science together in a STEAM collaboration.

As Artist in Residence, Caroline has worked with students, staff members Mandy Foulds and Michael Hawkins and the Friends of Art to create legacy artworks as the centrepiece of the residency contribution to the school.

The students enjoyed diving into the creation of printed works – firstly experimenting with observational drawing and gel printing, then advancing to stencil making and pochoir printing using the school’s printing press.
