Limelight and Floriade

As a Visual Art’s Teacher at Mount Stromlo High School, I am always looking out for competitions and exhibitions for my talented students to enter. We recently exhibited in the Limelight Exhibition 2015 held at the ANU. This was an amazing opportunity for us to showcase our students best work. Twelve students’ artworks were chosen to enter and they were shown alongside entries from 300 students from 30 ACT public schools. The exhibition included artwork from preschool students all the way through till year 12 students, and showcased photography, sculpture, collage, painting, lino print and mix media works.

Every year I go to Floriade and check out the Gnomes, this year I decided to run an in-school competition and enter as a school group. The students had to submit a design and then if chosen they came in at break times to paint it. Mount Stromlo entered ten Gnomes ranging from sombre, respectful ANZACS to a cheeky little clown, but our most impressive Gnome, a Bi-plane designed and created by Neve Foxcroft brought them all together. I am very proud to announce we won the Bronze Award for the Best School group. Watch out for our entries next year!
