  • learn how to create innovative and personally relevant concepts for the Folio
  • discover the techniques and approaches of artists and how they can creatively adapt these approaches for their practical responses in the Visual Study
  • gain tips from past Year 12 Visual Arts students


All materials will be provided, but we recommend bringing your own sketchbook. 


Alex Beckinsale is an emerging artist whose work is inspired by strange narratives, folklore, and popular culture. She graduated from Adelaide Central School of Art with a Bachelor of Visual Art (Honours) in 2016. She focuses on figurative art and portraiture, often constructing otherworldly and mysterious situations in her work.



Jasmine Crisp completed a Bachelor Of Visuals Arts (honours) at Adelaide Central School in 2017 and has since been granted the 12 month Carclew (2018) and Praxis (2019) artist in residence programs in SA as well as multiple international artist residencies across Iceland (SíM, NES) and Finland (Koli Ryynanen). Crisp’s works are exhibited interstate and internationally, with paintings included in the Artbank collection, awarded first prizes in the CCH Art Prize, Prospect Portrait Prize and YouthScape Art Prize, and as people’s choice winner or finalist in the Ravenswood Art Prize, SALA Advertiser awards, Emma Hack Art Prize and Kennedy Art Prize. Crisp has created semi/permanent large scale murals for festivals across Port Adelaide, Brisbane, Geelong and The Art Gallery of South Australia.



Roy Ananda is a visual artist, writer, and educator practicing on Kaurna Country (Tarndanya/Adelaide Plains). His objects, drawings, installations, texts, and videos variously celebrate popular culture, play, process, and the very act of making. Since 2001 he has exhibited prolifically around Australia and since 2004 has lectured in drawing and sculpture at Adelaide Central School of Art. In 2017, Ananda completed a post-graduate research degree at the University of South Australia with a specific focus on the intersection of pop-culture fandom and contemporary art practice. He is the subject of the 2021 South Australian Living Artist Publication, published by Wakefield Press.
