1991 Winter School

July 1991

In July 1991, ANAT held the first of its Winter Schools in Computer Aided Art, Design and Manufacture.

The rationale behind the inauguration of Winter Schools was to supplement the Summer Schools held by ANAT, which were unable to answer the growing needs of the arts community with regard to training in the field of computer aided art.

There were eight places available for the two week course for South Australian artists. The artists who participated were: Michael Hutchings, Greg Holfeld, Josephine Starrs, Bev Puckeridge, Sue Berry, Robert Farnan, Leah Grycewicz and Wayne Macintosh.

It was not necessary for the artists to have computer experience. The artists who attended were largely inexperienced in computer usage, or had a very basic introduction to them for word processing. Phil George and Lynne Roberts-Goodwin, Sydney based computer artists and lecturers, both exemplary graduates of a previous ANAT Summer School, were employed as tutors at the school. Over ten days, Lynne and Phil taught the students animation, painting and manipulation on Macintosh computers.
