Applecross Senior High School is hosting a four-day visual art exhibition from Friday 27th to Monday 30th of November 2015.
The unique exhibition, featuring original ceramics, sculpture, graphic design, printmaking, textiles and more, will showcase a selection of works created by the students of the Gifted and Talented Visual Art Program and the Art Department.
Established at Applecross Senior High School in 1968, the Gifted and Talented Education: Visual Arts program was the first program of its type in Western Australia.
Only students who demonstrate talent in the Visual Arts are selected to attend the 'Special Art Program' following rigorous statewide practical art testing. The prestigious Visual Arts program receives well over 200 applications for the 32 positions available each year.
This unique Visual Arts program offers students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a range of highly specialised studio disciplines during regular Saturday morning workshops conducted by professional artists and practicing crafts persons.
In these workshops students explore a wide range of techniques, processes and materials and learn to develop their own ideas through visual art.
This is a rare opportunity to see what the students have been working on throughout the year and discover new talent.
The exhibition will take place at the Art Dept Building and all are welcome to attend.
It will be opened by accomplished artist Mark Datodi at a special Opening Night event on Friday 27th November 2015, from 6pm.
It will then be open ￼Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 10am to 5pm and Monday from 9am to 2pm
Entry is free.
