St Patrick's College Strathfield

SPC Artist in Residence


During the late 1990s and early 2000s the College’s then Visual Arts Department ran a successful Artist in Residence Programme. A number of highly respected Australian artists, such as Joe Frost, Kim Spooner and Bronwyn Bancroft came to the College and worked in residence with Visual Arts students.  

Portrait artist and 2017 Archibald Prize Finalist Loribelle Spirovski will join the College for a week to work with and mentor our Visual Arts students. Loribelle will set up her studio in the Mary MacKillop Art Centre where she will continue resolving her own bodies of work. This will allow our students the privilege of observing an artist in situ and working in a sustained and engaged manner.

A component of the Artist in Resident Programme will see Loribelle teach a life drawing class and participate in a Q&A evening with a display of her works. The life drawing class is offered to parents and friends (places are limited), while the evening exhibition will be extended to parents, friends and students. Please see the attached flyer below.
