Students Shine in Excellence in Art Design Competition
Northpine’s Secondary Students showcased their artistic flair in the Independent Education Union’s annual Excellence in Art Design Awards.
This year’s theme ‘In the Garden’ gave our Northpine student entrants the opportunity to head outdoors, gaining inspiration to create artworks which best symbolized the theme, which originated from The Secret Garden quotation, “The whole world is a garden”.
The competition was established in memory and celebration of Harriet Hunter, a gifted and talented student whose life was unexpectedly and tragically taken in 1999 after trying to save her dog in the South-East Queensland floods.
The competition attracts more than 1,000 entries from the independent education sector within the Queensland and Northern Territory region each year, where participants are asked to produce a piece of artwork that best reflects the theme. The artworks may be painted, printed, drawn or can be a collage, sculpture, multi-media or photographic work.
Congratulations to Chloe Huston, Aimee Sheather, Elisa Lesa, Taylah Carr, Tapiwanashe Masvaure, Grace Archer, Kaliesha Coyte, Monique Wood, Emily MacGregor, Holly Bates, and Natasha Pidgeon, who represented NCC from Year 7-11 by submitting exceptional art works. Awards of Participation will be presented to these students in recognition for their outstanding efforts.
Well done, girls on showcasing your talents. If you feel that you would like to be a part of this competition in 2017, we encourage all artistic students from Prep-Year 12 to submit an entry next year.
“Art is a very important area of learning in schools and kindergartens and IEUA-QNT is proud to support students, teachers and practising artists in Queensland. These students are to be congratulated for their remarkable achievements.” – EUA-QNT Branch Secretary, Terry Burke.
