Artist in Residence

Christine and Regina have travelled around the cities, regional and capital, wherever work has been requested.

Because Christine can work with a wide range of materials and has a network of people to call on for installation, it gives her the ability to work in a range of spaces.

Whether you have small groups, large groups or need a commission to create an artwork for your space, Christine and Regina can facilitate the discussion for different ideas for producing vibrant and contemporary installations on walls or as free standing sculptures.

Christine and Regina are registered teachers - an advantage when working in schools and with young people.

Residencies offer great satisfaction for artist and students. Together with students, the collaborative creation of art can can make a positive and exciting difference to learning and communities.

Over the past 15 years, Christine has had various residencies in primary and secondary schools, country communities, along with a three-year residency at Sacred Heart College Geelong for 2010-2012.

In her role as ‘Artist in Residence’, Chris inspires, motivates and guides the students with the development of each art project. Chris’s projects are conceptually unique and offer the students wonderful opportunities that they would not necessarily experience within the art classroom. The works are often large scale and challenging, requiring the students to work as a team in order to complete the work within a specified time frame. The students find these workshop experiences extremely rewarding and feel a real sense of pride in seeing the artworks become part of the Sacred Heart College landscape.

"When you work as an artist-in-residence it enables an unique relationship to develop in the community or classroom where the work is being produced. It enables me to explore the needs of the culture and people within your community."        - Christine Sage
