‘Silk Banners’

An Artist-in-Residence project touring 15 remote schools in the Top End of Australia. The project involved driving long distances or flying in small planes to get to each school. The students worked on the theme of drugs awareness with their teachers before Janie arrived.  Each banner was designed and painted by the children as Janie taught them silk painting techniques. The lightweight artworks became tourable so that each school could borrow the silk banners to use as teaching aids on the subject. The 15 banners were exhibited at the Human Rights Exhibition held at The Supreme Court in Darwin and was awarded First Prize .

Commissioned by Top End Group Schools, N.T
