Artwork appreciated

By Georgia Smith

Morning tea at Benalla P-12 College’s Faithful St campus has never looked so good.

An exhibition of years 7, 8 and 9 visual communication artwork from terms one and two was displayed for staff to enjoy on Thursday.

The artwork stemmed from self portraits to dot paintings, showcasing the vast artistic skills of the students.

This was the first time the artwork had been shown at the staff’s weekly morning tea.

Art and visual communication teacher Bridget Evans said the students were excited to have their work on display.

‘‘I’ve been telling them about it and they’re all very excited,’’ Miss Evans said.

‘‘It’s about showing off the art to other teachers who might not know what’s going on around the rest of the school.’’

The display room will be used as a safe space for the students to look and celebrate what they have achieved so far this year.

Miss Evans said the idea stemmed from a display held last year of the Year 8 students’ work on the renaissance, which was showcased for staff and students.

‘‘Some of the students can’t wait to be able to take their artwork home,’’ Miss Evans said.

The budding artists still have plenty of opportunities to create more art for the rest of the school year.
