Junior Art Show

The Junior Art Show was held on Monday 4 December. The night was a huge success and a fantastic way to celebrate the end of the year with a bang.

The guest speaker for the event was Anthony Breslin, who has also been facilitating the Year 9 Mural Project at the East Campus. His ongoing collaboration with McKinnon Secondary College has allowed us to provide meaningful opportunities for our students to witness professional artmaking.

Anthony was also asked to select a Guest Speaker award on the night; one artwork which he felt was outstanding and demonstrated creativity and high technical competence. I am excited to announce that the recipient for this award is Jackson Robenn for his Cubist inspired artwork completed in Year 9 Sculpture. Congratulations to Jackson for this achievement!

I would also like to congratulate all of our award winners in Years 7, 8 and 9! Congratulations as well to all exhibiting students whose work was on display! The quality of work presented this year, as always impressed all. We, as a teaching team are so lucky to be able to teach and work with so many talented young artists!

As always thank you to all the staff and students who have worked tirelessly to make both our Art Shows successful. Thank you to the East Campus Visual Arts team Emma Butler, Maria Garcia, Tracy Griffith and Lynton Perry, as well as our Year 7 teachers Rebecca Johnson, Raphaella Roden, Jessica Rogosic and Katherine Sip.

We still have one project to look forward to this year; the completion of the Year 9 Mural which will be installed in the near future. Keep an eye out for news regarding the installation of this artwork!
