Kiara is our first Student Artist Profile for 2020, and it is clear why. Kiara is in Year 11, and currently taking an ATAR pathway into Arts and Literature. Since childhood, Kiara has always had a passion and fascination for the Arts, saying that she “is always doing something artsy” and describes her room as covered with sketches and drawings.
Currently, Kiara is working on an art project for ATAR Visual Arts (seen in photo), where they have recently been studying composition, differences in perspectives, and style. The key idea is that artwork should have purpose and a message to share, which Kiara strongly believes in.
Kiara’s favorite style of art is illustration and it is clear to see that this is the area she performs in best. Some of her visual and written pieces have been showcased through the Nagle Wavelength and Genesis publications.
By following various artists through social media and browsing Pinterest, she draws her inspiration through a diverse community of designers. Kiara spoke about how her art class expresses her “creative outlook” and is “very therapeutic”. As she works, plays netball and tennis, and studies, Kiara finds that the art class is an escape from her busy lifestyle.
Therefore, Kiara fully encourages younger students to select an art course in the future as she wishes it to bring them the same joy it gives her. We wish Kiara luck for her first ATAR exams this week and we are eager to see more of her pieces in the future. Well done Kiara!
