The Year 10 visual art students had an SSS alumni, Sarah Pearn, deliver an oil painting workshop on Monday. It was Sarah who painted the portrait of Glenda Parkin that is on the wall in the Glenda Parkin Learning Centre. Sarah studied Realist Fine Art at The Florence Academy of Art in Italy, after graduating from St Stephen’s School in 2006. Having moved back to Australia, she now focuses on producing highly traditional, classical portraiture. Her passionate knowledge for oil painting rubbed off on our Year 10 Visual Art students who learnt the skills needed to mix skin tones and blending techniques to create a realistic portrait painting.Students painted portraits and practices mixing skin tones.
