iServi News | 5 July 2019 | Term 2, Week 10
Our Semester 1 Visual Arts Showcase this week engaged visitors of all ages with vivid colour, considered reflections and strong techniques
This student exhibition is a display of the best Artwork from Year 7 to Year 12, across a range of techniques and styles including two-dimensional and three-dimensional work, as well as photography and short film. Over 400 pieces were on display, featuring some outstanding Art works. The Year 9 lino pints were particularly beautiful demonstrating use of precision to create texture and the Year 10 Giacometti sculptures and Mexican Day of the Dead skulls displayed incredible balance, pattern and character. Senior school Art students displayed their thought provoking, personally expressive pieces – a culmination of many weeks of hard work.
This year also saw the inclusion of Furniture and Wood pieces from the Technologies Learning Area. The upper school boys, in particular, created beautiful tables, chairs and planter boxes – some featuring interesting and unexpected resin inlays.
Music students were featured on the evening with Year 8 student Ryan Ng providing background music on the piano. We were also treated to a special performance by Year 8 student Elizabe Visser, who entertained the crowd with her beautiful singing voice.
Thank you to all students whose work was exhibited –you should feel very proud of your creative achievements. And a big thank you to the staff, parents and ex-students who supported them on the evening. Thank you also to the Visual Arts and Design Technology Team who have put in a lot of hours both during and after school to bring this exhibition to life.
META Exhibition and St George’s Exhibition
The META Exhibition is an exhibition run in association with North Metropolitan TAFE. It showcases a selection of the best work from Year 11 and 12 and TAFE students from across Western Australia. Year 12 student Grace Armstrong entered her Ceramic sculpture and it was chosen to be exhibited this year.
We have also entered 3 pieces of Year 12 work into the St George’s Exhibition – Tess Ryan, Chloe Laurence and Muja Gama. Each of these girls completed beautiful portraits of a significant person in their life.
Both exhibitions will be held early in Term 3.
