What an absolutely fabulous trip. The weather was perfect and the Arts experience was truly amazing. We began the trip with a tour and practical workshop at the Brett Whiteley Studio in Surrey Hills, where we got to see works only ever seen in books, up close and in real life. After some scrumptious treats from Bourke St Bakery, we headed off to our accommodation in The Rocks. The view from our balcony was truly spectacular; we could see the whole of the bay. Friday was a jam packed day which began with our tour and workshop at NIDA, where we did workshops based around acting, costume design and music and dance for film. We then headed to the Australian Film Radio and Television School, where we participated in workshops on clay animation, film and directing and creating music for film. That night we experienced the amazing musical “We Will Rock You”, which truly blew our socks off. Saturday began with a tour of the Sydney Opera House, followed by a trip to Manly with our night spent enjoying Luna Park. Sunday saw us enjoying the markets at The Rocks before we had to leave and return back to Adelaide.
