Parkes Christian School Year 9/10 Elective Visual Arts class and our Year 12 Visual Arts students had the amazing privilege of completing a one day workshop with Cowra Artist, Glenn Morton. Our students spent time drawing and taking photographs while receiving valuable feedback and encouragement from Glenn. Our students enjoyed viewing Glenn’s work and were inspired to practise their skills and continue to work to achieve their artistic goals.

Our students were able to watch Glenn at work as he painted and shared some pointers about choices of colour. He has a way of making chickens come to life with few quick strokes of the brush! Inspirational! Ella Richards was awarded this painting of chickens as a reward for the drawings she completed during the workshop. Well done Ella! Jessica Weber and Luke Dixon also received commendations for their work on the day, completing a range of beautifully crafted drawings. Mitchell Applebee received a commendation for his efforts with the camera! He demonstrated his wonderful eye for the perfect shot!. Our students left Glenn’s workshop inspired to further explore their artistic potential. We were all so grateful for Glenn and Fiona’s hospitality. Opportunities like these are incredibly valuable to our students.
