Artist in Residence

Artometry is the story of an integrated approach to learning in Maths, Economics and Visual Art that asks participants to reflect on, reinterpret and respond to concepts of equity and equality. 

The catalyst for artistic exploration was a 2016 Oxfam statistic documenting the richest 1% of the world’s population owning more than 50% of the world’s wealth. Artometry provided a space for students to engage with these concepts using the language of art, extending their personal expression and reflect students’ own contemporary perspectives.

Local artists, Chris Nixon and Haylee Fieldes and Arts and Technologies staff Alison Blackwell, Jenna Antoniolli and Mellissa McCarthy supported and mentored students as they explored and developed their responses. Year 10 student, Mia Abbott said “Artometry introduced us to artists who helped with the skills and techniques to work on a different platform”. Classmate Eliza Lock added, “it gave me the freedom to explore my own ideas and work on a different canvas”.

Artometry has added a vitality to the school’s campus and continues to stimulate conversation, giving students an enhanced sense of belonging. Collaborative arts enrichment across different learning areas has empowered students to transfer and integrate their learning in deeply meaningful ways.
