Make Your Mark
“MAKE YOUR MARK”
St. George Art Society School Mentoring Program
SUPPORTING ARTISTS OF THE FUTURE
The “Make Your Mark” School Mentoring Program is an initiative of the St.George Art Society, designed to activate, engage and inspire creative thinking and art making by local young artists.
Participating High Schools:
- Moorefield Girls High
- James Cook Boys Technology High
- George Girls High
- Kogarah High School.
Mentoring and assistance is conducted by members of the St George Art Society. Students are given demonstrations and practical experience in the use of different media including acrylic, watercolour and sketching. Each student selects a media to use for a major artwork, which is then eligible for the St. George Art Society’s Outstanding Young Artist awards and exhibition at the Love Local Artisan Market and the SGAS Annual Art Show.
Because of COVID – 19 restrictions it has not been possible to run this program in 2020 however a selection of student artwork will be shown on the St. George Art Society website and the awards for Outstanding Young Artists will be presented to winning students.
It is planned to resume Make Your Mark in 2021, expanding the program to include more schools and a wider age group range.
