walk to art is happy to offer walking tours for school groups. walk to art is designed to encourage artistic development through discovery and exploration. walk to art allows the students to understand the process of a range of technical skills and mediums. Exploring ideas and issues, how artists develop their own styles and approaches to artistic expression.
walk to art will not take the students to the large public galleries or museums, but we will travel through the streets looking up and down, to street art, public art, artist run spaces and artist studios.
As an art consultant, Bernadette Alibrando can educate about the journey of the artist, explore the concepts and encourage these creative young talents.
Testimonial: "We examined the street art that has made Melbourne one of the best known street art centers in the world and some of the small contemporary art spaces that are available to new artists. Bernadette challenged us to question the visual spaces around us and guided us to broaden our thinking beyond conservative ideas of what art 'should or could' be." Luisa Stocco, Year 12 Art and Design Teacher at Mercedes College, Adelaide SA (text available from the Mercedes College Newsletter, May 2009)
