The Surf Coast Secondary College Art Academy program offers a diverse range of industry-based experiences designed to enrich and challenge students.
The program provides a platform for students to further their understanding and appreciation of visual art, and to extend their art making practice.
Each fortnight students engage in specialist workshops, artist talks and extended investigations. Twice a term students will partake in an immersive experience of gallery visits, artist talks and studio visits.
A highlight of the program is an overnight visit to the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania.
SCSC’s Surf Academy has been specifically tailored to broaden knowledge & enhance an array of surf skills.
There has been a large focus on the academic aspects of surfing, including the bio-mechanics, board shaping, diet and film making.
Our vision is to be recognised as an exclusive sporting development program within the Surf Coast community & wider Victoria, providing students with a pathway towards sporting excellence & career opportunities.
Considering the Surf Coast lifestyle and the current cultural environment of the youth of today, we see this program as a fitting addition to support students through their academic years at school. Our vision is to not only progress the skills of our young skate stars, but to also provide them with plausible pathways & career opportunities. We hope that skating becomes a life long commitment for academy members.
The Skate Academy values are absolutely in line with the Surf Coast SC school values.
Strive - Unite - Respect - Flourish
It is expected that all members consider & practice these values within both their Academic and Academy experiences.
