Mosman High Art Committee
Artwork by Mosman High 2019 HSC Student, Elliot Christmas
The Mosman High Art Committee raises funds for the Art Department including materials, pinboards, TV, learning aids, and excursions. Anything that is required to enrich the learning and teaching process for all students and staff.
Over the past four years, we have been involved with working bees to assist the staff with general cleans-ups and organisational tasks to assist with getting the art block ready for the annual Art Exhibition that showcases the HSC Major works and the work of Years 7 to 11.
The Mosman High Art Committee also produces a hardcover book of the HSC Art student’s major works. The students receive a copy on graduation and Principal Susan Wyatt proudly presents them as gifts on her official visits.
In 2015 we ran our first major fundraising event, the AnonyMos Secret Artist Project, an Art Sale and Exhibition of anonymous, untitled 8”x8” canvases. Established and emerging artists, Mosman High teachers, parents, ex-students and some of our talented students, donated an artwork on the canvas provided. The generous support of the artists, as well as local businesses and the school community, was amazing!
Over more recent years, The Art Committee has hosted events such as:
Sip and Create
An evening of art-making, wine and nibbles led by our talented teachers. Participants from our Mosman community and school choose a fun, 2-hour session of Life Drawing, Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, Brooch Making or Print Making.
The Creative Speaker Series
Was launched in 2019 with an exciting lineup of speakers from curators of international galleries, World famous illustrators, film makers and performance artists live on stage. This exciting speaker series was the first of its kind in our school for the Art Department and provided great enrichment to our current students and the broader community.
These events along with the inaugural The Mosman Art Walk all share the same aim - to support art education at Mosman High School.
