Western Riverina Arts assisted Leeton High School in negotiating a public art contract during 2015, bringing artist Jason Wing to the region to create a large-scale mural. Wing worked with year 11 art students on this major project that now fills a large undercover canteen area.
Jason Wing is an artist of Aboriginal and Chinese heritage and has exhibited work both nationally and internationally. His work is held in both private and public collections including the National Gallery of Australia. Wing is well known for his innovative and collaborative mural projects.
Jason Wing worked intensively with Leeton High School students on the mural design over two weeks. While in the region he also ran a skills workshop for the public, and was a guest speaker for the event Artists in Schools. This development session for teachers looked at best practice for working with professional artists in a school environment.
