Certificate IV Design

After establishing a virtual relationship with Will from Blankwalls earlier in the year, our ‘real-life’ mentoring began recently at Maylands Campus for our Certificate IV students. Alongside Will, we were introduced to Jerome (Ketones), a street artist who has been working for over 15 years, internationally.

This mentoring program was not just about establishing a relationship, but a spatial context on how to collaborate with artists. Being in the space, Jerome and Will quickly highlighted some of the conditions we would be working in.

I get the feeling we are going to need to have one or two people working on guarding the leaves against the artwork…This beautiful sun is going to allow us to work on re-applying coats quickly, it is going to make us work fast and hard. – Jerome

If we have twelve painters, depending on the design, we go for, the plan of attack is crucial. Maybe we do outlines first, or, we could start from one side and move through diagonally. – Will

This concrete is really porous, our paint lines will bleed quickly, a base coat with this material will give us a nice smooth surface that will allow us to work around the air bubbles in the stairs. – Jerome

After the analysing the canvas together, a true connection started to develop as the two spent close to time with the students one on one. Working the room individually, they provided an insight into how the students could better achieve their ideas. This type of authentic appraisal is priceless, to have an artist sit alongside as a peer and share their experiences to frame how they would approach the projects.

We look forward to working alongside them in Term 4, while we make adjustments to our designs based on their feedback.
