Artist in Residence – Gail Barker

Have you ever been to one of our biennial Spencer Park Primary School Art Exhibitions? We are super excited to announce that our 2021 Art Exhibition will be open for viewing from October 27 to November 10, 2021 at the Western Australian Museum, Albany.

The theme this year is It’s a wonderful world’.

Every student at SPPS is currently in the process of creating their own piece of art for exhibition. To provide motivation and inspiration, we invited local artist, Gail Barker, to be our ‘Artist in Residence’ this year. What a wonderful opportunity for our school community.

Gail kindly gave up her time to share her journals, paintings, advice, knowledge and encouragement with our students. The students asked some interesting and insightful questions, and we all greatly appreciated Gail’s visit.  Photos from our Artist in Residence can be viewed here. Have you put our art exhibition dates in your diary?
