We look forward this inspiring exhibition.

An exhibition of artworks by support unit students from Sydney Secondary College Blackwattle Bay Campus featuring works by both current and former students.

Art Ability is an exhibition of works on paper in a variety of mediums by both current and former secondary students from the support unit at Sydney Secondary College, Blackwattle Bay Campus. The title conveys the idea that students with disabilities also have many talents and abilities. This exhibition showcases the skills and talent of our students in the area of artmaking. Themes explored include self-portraits, still-life and cityscapes as well as abstracts in 2D mediums including drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking and collage. Our students have thoroughly immersed themselves in the artmaking process and have worked incredibly hard to produce an impressive collection of original and distinctive artworks. They are looking forward to showing their work in a real-world art context at the Balmain Watch House.

The artworks included in this exhibition will not be for sale, however visitors will have the opportunity to buy cards featuring all artworks. Proceeds from the sale of the cards will be used to fund further artmaking projects for students in our support unit.
