Visual Arts

Students at TAS have the opportunity to further explore visual arts as part of the co-curricular offering in photography, film and pottery.

Photography Club

The Photography Club meets most weeks on Thursday lunchtimes to share ideas, ask questions, practice and learn techniques. From composition, lighting and exposure to the latest in camera bodies, accessories and apps, the club covers a wide range of interests. Guest speakers from both inside the school and the wider community willingly share their expertise. The club is working towards a photo exhibition and competition in November. All interested students and staff are welcome; contact TAS Reception on 6776 5800 or email [email protected]

Film Making

Using state of the art equipment, this club is for film buffs interested film writing, directing, producing, lighting, editing and sound. A strong focus will be on the creation of high-quality videos of school life for promotional purposes. The club generally meets on Friday afternoons after school, in the Hoskins Centre. Open to boys from year 6 up.


Noted New England potter Rick Hatch conducts classes for students in Terms 1-3, in the ground floor art room in the Hoskins Centre. Classes for students from 5 to 11 years are held on Monday afternoons from 4.00-5.00pm.

Classes for students 12 years and older are held on Wednesday evenings from 6.00pm-8.00pm. Fees apply. For more information and booking contact Rick Hatch on 6772 5371 or [email protected]

Visual Arts Club

Starting up this year is a Visual Arts club for Middle School and Senior School students run by new Visual Arts teacher Polly Harvey. The group will meet after school for students to experiment with their artmaking interests and have some guidance in personal projects. The intention is for the group to have some national art prizes to work towards and students keen to learn more should contact Mr O’Connell or Ms Harvey.
