18TH BIENNALE OF SYDNEY: NOW OPEN
The 18th Biennale of Sydney: all our relations is now open!
As Australia’s largest and most exciting visual arts event, the 18th Biennale presents more than
220 works by over 100 artists and collaborators – including many new works created especially for Sydney.
The exhibition is presented at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia,
Pier 2/3 and the legendary Cockatoo Island. For the first time, the Biennale is collaborating with Redfern-based contemporary
arts institution Carriageworks, that will present two international dance performances and an art installation as part of the exhibition.
Alongside the exhibition, the Biennale presents artist talks, guided tours, performances, forums,
family days and other special events – throughout the 12 weeks of the festival.
Thanks to Etihad Airways, Biennale artists from around the world have flown to Sydney to take part in our exiting program of Opening Week events.

Successful applicants for this residency will be given the opportunity to participate in a
forum as part of the Sydney Art and About Festival on September 22nd.
A.R.P is now calling out for emerging and established artists, working in any

School student Art Classes- Term 3 Enrolments Now Open
A reminder that term 3 childrens class enrolments are now open, please be quick as some time slots are filling fast.
We are continuing to bring new ways to teach drawing and painting skills that our young artists need to develop
Firstly – the lesson plans for this term have been prepared by an international exhibiting artist who lives in New Jersey.
The children will benefit from the approach and methods used in the plans.
Parents are welcome to come and browse through the lesson plans. You will find a folder at each studio that contains a copy of the plans.
Secondly we have asked Cristina Aura to lead an advanced childrens class in drawing leading to portraiture in the Baulkham Hills studio at 9am on Saturdays
Cristina holds a Master of Visual Arts and is a member of Portrait Artists Australia. She has taught at SCEGGS for a number of years.
She has been teaching a highly successfully course for adults at Sydney Art School and her unique way of
teaching drawing will help the more motivated and focussed children take their art to a new level.
Please visit our website for class times and venues
