Students exhibit year of art work
What better way to showcase a year of countless hours and effort put in by creative art students than an exhibition involving the whole school?
Ruawai College is launching an art and design exhibition tomorrow at 6pm.
Parents, friends and family who have watched these budding artists invest time, effort and thought into their work have the opportunity to view the intricate art and wood designs on display.
The exhibition in the college hall will also be open on Friday from 9am till 3pm and will feature work from years 7 to 13 students.
Head of visual art Julie Hale hopes it will become an annual event.
"It's exciting for the kids. Hopefully we can use it to motivate them to produce more awesome work next year."
The senior portfolios have just returned from marking and although the grades haven't been made official, Miss Hale says the students should be very proud.
"I am happy with the work the students have produced this year. The skills and ideas they have developed over the course of this year have prepared them well for the next level of NCEA visual art."
Refreshments will be provided by the PTA.
