CANLAH: Secondary School Art Exhibition
Art students from year 6 through to year 12 presented their artwork at the annual Secondary School Art Exhibition. This year’s exhibition entitled Can Lah once again demonstrated the extraordinary talents of our young artists.
The exhibition not only showcased the creative energy of all of the secondary art students, but it was also an opportunity to display graduation pieces from HSC and IB students
Nick Coulter Head of Visual Arts said the exhibition is really important for the young artists as it gave them an opportunity to show off their skills to their family and friends.
A highlight of the Annual Exhibition is the whole heart parents who see their children with pride and as artists in the context of this professional exhibition space.
Nick’s favourite memories from the exhibition was hearing Jade Tang talking about her photographic work “Snob Society”, Sally Lee who received praise on her quality painting throughout her Diploma journey and Emily Segura, carefully guarding her 5 ceramic children on plinths inside the HSC room door,
The new larger exhibition space in the Lower Elementary Level 2 Pod this year also contributed to the success of the event, adding more opportunities to showcase the students work and gave students the freedom to explore installation for themselves. The new display screen gave the platform for students work to be truly celebrated for the
talents we have in the school. Visiting schools were extremely impressed with the level talent we have at AIS.
As an innovative addition to the exhibition the students added an interactive component to their art by using an augmented reality tool Aurasma. As people were visiting the exhibition they could simply use an App to zoom in on an artwork and they would be able to hear from the young artists about the process and inspiration behind their pieces.
Meet our Leadership Team and tour AIS on 21 & 22 February
