Senior lecturers from the School of Art, Architecture and Design recently returned from UniSA's Whyalla campus where they delivered a series of creative workshops aimed at introducing students in the area to the possiblities of creative careers. The workshops involved hands-on creative activities, drawing from product design, illustration and animation, architecture and interior architecture program areas with a focus on developing core cross-disciplinary skills for students interested in tertiary study.

Open to participants from years 8-12, students from Whyalla High School, Stuart High School, Samaritan College, Edward John Eyre High School and Port Lincoln High School attended the workshops and participated in design-oriented technical drawing activities, visualisation and illustration exercises, sustainable architectural design activities, and colour experimentation and theory.
