The Forest Reflections project is an immersive experience for the students of Grovely State Primary School in the landscapes of the forest of the DÁguilar Range and the local Kedron Brook, with artist in residence, Jennifer Seevinck.
Students will visit, study and reflect upon their experiences to inform the visual form and aesthetic concepts behind their artworks. The students and artist will create 2 interactive artworks, small forest creature sculptures (assemblage) or collages which will then be animated using stop-motion techniques, perspective maps, diaries as well as working materials like photos, rubbings, sculptures and artefacts from field trips.
This project is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body, and by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. It is supported by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services and recognised by the United Nations group for the International Year of the Forests 2011.
