Students' artistry shines through
Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School students from kindergarten to Year 12 have let their creative talents shine in the School’s annual Art and Technology Exhibition and two-week arts festival.
Year 12 student Maddy King was awarded the top prize for Year 12 Visual Arts in the exhibition, as well as the Old Grammarian Association’s acquisitive award.
Her painting, ‘Connection to Country’, was inspired by her time living in Broome, where she learnt about indigenous Australian culture.
“A lot of society only focuses on the negative aspects of Aboriginal culture and I wanted to focus on the positives.”
Miss King said she tried to imitate the stick figures used in many of Aboriginal artist Judy Prosser’s paintings.
“It is all about continuing culture through three generations, ” she said.
High school visual arts teacher Caroline Cooper said the exhibition and arts festival allowed students of all ages to showcase their talents in sculpture, woodwork, metalwork, photography, fashion and performing and visual arts.
