Year 10 Art students recently embarked on an excursion to the Brisbane City Botanical Gardens, corresponding to their art unit the archive. Using natural materials scavenged from the gardens, students created cyanotypes on fabrics – A photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue coloured print after being exposed to ultraviolet light. Students also explored cyanotype artworks of artist Eliza Jane Carmichael in the QUT Art Museum, and the works of William Robinson in the William Robinson Gallery.

Returning to the Botanical Gardens, students reproduced the details of their surrounding natural environment through a variety of drawing approaches, including frottage, contour drawing, negative space drawing, and more. As night fell, the excursion concluded with a long-exposure photography session, where students experimented with camera shutter speeds and the element of light to capture photographs.

A special thank you to all the teaching staff who made this memorable excursion possible.​
