Years 7-11 Art & Design Show

Wednesday 29 July was the official opening of the Years 7-11 Art and Design show at the Ridgeway Campus. It was a night that celebrated the creative talents of students working in art, studio arts, product design technology and visual communication design.

The exhibition was officially opened by Mr Kevin Burgemeestre, a practising visual artist and writer, who has worked with our students in the Year 9 artist in residence program. Kevin complimented our students on their talents, the diverse range of work produced and the way that our students interpret their ideas through their art making.

This year Patrick Woodward (Year 11) was the proud recipient of the Old Ivanhoe Grammarians’ Association encouragement award in the visual arts. The award is now in its fourth year and was presented to Patrick by Mr Peter Swain (class of 1975 and current president of the OIGA).

Excellence and special recognition awards were also presented to students from each of the Years 7 to 10 art and design classes.

Congratulations to the staff who worked tirelessly in the weeks leading up to the event to ensure that the exhibition was wonderful success.
