Abstract This paper presents the art and visual journals of three senior secondary students who had recently migrated to Australia. Specifically, it explores the ways in which the students engaged with notions of space, and in particular 'Thirdspaces' in their art. Through the students' visual representations, and the discussion around their art, I argue that the art that students create can become the point where space and subjectivity encounter and enfold in potentially transformative ways.
