Mosman High Art Committee
Artwork by Mosman High 2019 HSC student, Elliot Christmas
The Mosman High Art Committee raises funds for the school's art department including materials, learning aids, talks and excursions - anything that is required to enrich the learning and teaching process for all students and staff.
We also contribute hands-on involvement, with working bees to assist preparing the art block for the popular annual Art Exhibition that showcases Year 12 HSC major works and the work of Years 7 to 11.
Each year the Mosman High Art Committee produces a hardcover book of the HSC art students' 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”x 8” 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!
The Art Committee has also 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, two-hour session of Life Drawing, Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, Brooch Making or Print Making.
The Creative Speaker Series
Launched in 2019 with an exciting lineup of speakers including international gallery curators, famous illustrators, film makers and performance artists live on stage. This series was the first of its kind in our school for the Art Department and provides great enrichment to current students and the broader community.
Just like the Mosman Art Walk, these events all share the same aim - to support art education at Mosman High School while creating valuable connections with the local community.
