Promising year 11 visual arts students from western Sydney are among 76 attending a four-day intensive drawing workshop at the National Art School, Darlinghurst.
The Dobell Drawing School program, which ends today, included portrait, life and experimental figure drawing workshops.
It aims to provide students from regional NSW an opportunity to develop their skills, guided by practicing artists.
‘‘The Dobell School is a wonderful way to foster and enhance the creativity of talented secondary students,’’ director Michael Snelling said.
‘‘It broadens their perception of the art world and develops skills necessary for further visual art studies.’’
The Department of Education and Communities nominates participants.
Participants came from Baulkham Hills High School, Cumberland High School and James Ruse Agricultural High School in Carlingford, Macarthur Girls High School in Parramatta, Greystanes High School, Doonside High School, Erskine Park High School, Blacktown Girls High School, Jamison High School, Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School, Penrith High School, and St Marys Senior High School.
