On demand (subject to availability)
Spread the word about your upcoming event with custom Bill Posters designed by your students!
In Creating a Bill Poster, participants will be taken through the history and basics of bill posters and visual communication via images from Arts Centre Melbourne’s Performing Arts Collection. Students then create their own posters using Adobe Photoshop for a specific event relevant to your school and community.
If you are interested in creating Bill Posters with a contemporary music focus, opt for the Australian Music Vault Poster Design workshop. Using contemporary Australian examples to guide their creativity, students will create their own posters for a real or imagined music event using Photoshop. The Australian Music Vault is a new exhibition at Arts Centre Melbourne that will celebrate the past, present and future of Australian contemporary music. Delving into the extensive Australian Performing Arts Collection, objects will be on display for schools and the general public that will inspire and engage, telling the stories of the Australian music industry and its fans.
