After almost completing their final year, Wanganui Secondary College’s VCE arts students’ final folio work will be on display this month for one night only.
Teacher Andrew Nicols said the exhibition was a showcase of the folio work completed by students studying VCE art, studio art ceramics, studio arts photography, visual communication and product design and technology.
‘‘Anyone interested is more than welcome to come along,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s a culmination of what they’ve been doing throughout the year.’’
Mr Nicols said the senior learning centre would be filled with pieces that took the students’ hours of hard work.
Year 12 studio arts ceramics student Maddie Johnstone said she spent the entire year trying to achieve a mould of her teacher’s hands.
‘‘It’s the first mould I’ve ever done and it took me so long,’’ she said.
Ms Johnstone will showcase several ceramic pots which feature different textures.
Year 11 student Ebbonie Davis, who is fast-tracking VCE studio arts ceramics, said she was inspired by her childhood when creating her pieces — three wolf sculptures — which will be among the items on display.
‘‘It took me a solid week to build them and a week to paint them,’’ she said.
Mr Nicols said special guest Max Darby would also be in attendance.
‘‘He is a regular guest that comes every year,’’ he said.
‘‘He gives a speech and will also acknowledge the best piece of work.’’
Music and refreshments will be provided and entry is a gold-coin donation.
The exhibition begins at 6pm on Friday, October 20, in the Wanganui College Senior Learning Centre, Parkside Dr, Shepparton.
