Year 8 Visual Arts Excursion

Despite the poor rainy weather on Friday, 10 of August a group of Year 8 visual arts students proceeded with the architecture photographic excursion.  As the rain poured down students huddled under the pagoda next to the Pak Tai Temple located on Lung On Street, Wan Chai.  This traditional place of worship offered some visually appealing opportunities for students to compose their photographic shots. Students also attempted to sketch a detail of an urban surrounding structure, using a viewfinder and other skills that were taught in class. Back at school students were able to photograph other interesting compositions around our campus as supportive inspirational images to be incorporated into their artwork.
