It was great to have students, staff, families and friends back on the E2 arts floor this evening for the Year 12 Visual Arts Exhibition.

Students exhibited work across a wide range of art disciplines including painting and drawing, photography, sculpture, printmaking, fashion, collage and graphic design.

This year’s guest judge was Public Programs and Learning Officer from the Bendigo Art Gallery, Caitlyn Royce, who was “impressed by the calibre of the work” and spent many hours choosing this year’s prize winners and honourable mentions.

The exhibition is credit to the hard work of the students, but also the incredible support of teachers in BSSC’s Visual Arts department.

Congratulations to everyone who put their work ‘out there’ and to this year’s award recipients.
