Annual Year 12 Visual Art & Design Exhibition opening night

On Friday 18 October, the annual Year 12 Visual Art & Design exhibition was opened. The exhibition is a culmination and celebration of the final Year 12 folios that the senior students have explored Visual Art.

A variety of media is currently on display until November 14 ( 8.30 am- 4 pm, M-F) in the Visual Art & Design gallery space. Students have investigated a range of concepts and themes are now preparing for their final examinations.

The exhibition opening, with guest speaker Belinda Robertson, Arts and Cultural Development Officer of Maroondah Council and curator of events such as Pure Talent, allowed friends, family, students and the wider Tintern Grammar community to view the artistic journey the students have travelled and enjoy the opportunity to see the collection of artworks as a whole, as well as meet the artists. With lovely live music by Nicolani Susanto and a warm welcome from our 2019 Art Captains Jocelyn Ch’ng, Maddie Howell and James Harvey, we enjoyed refreshments in our contemporary art space.

Please make the time to come and visit, and not only see the works, but explore the artist statements that further detail the students creative journey.

Horizons Art 2016 – 2019 – Mosaic Totem Poles

In 2016, an opportunity was created for anyone interested in enhancing their art/creativity to join in as a group to make amazing works to adorn Tintern Grammar! Following on from our successful mosaic planters that feature at the entrance to the Visual Art & Design space, we embarked on a journey to make a series of mosaic ‘totem poles’ that were to be placed in the grounds of Tintern for everyone to enjoy. We wanted to fill the space with colour, pattern and a touch of whimsy, inspired by the wonderful public art works that Melbourne has to offer.

The culmination of many hours of work after school on a Monday, with students from Years 7 – 10, over four years, using 1000’s of glass and ceramic tiles, terracotta pots, adhesive, glue, very messy grout and painstaking designs and application are now proudly, and beautifully, installed in the ‘Mural Courtyard’ in between the Visual Art & Science Buildings.

As you traverse between the buildings, please take the time to appreciate the many, many hours of work and enjoy the array of colours, tiles and mirrors that create a sense of community and belonging.
