Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - FRONT PAGE - David Charlesworth

HAR­VEY Se­nior High School stu­dent Faye San­tos’ work stood out from the crowd to win the Framers Choice award from 300 oth­ers at the Iluka Vi­sions art ex­hi­bi­tion.

The Year 9 stu­dent’s work de­buted at the ex­hi­bi­tion which opened at the Bun­bury Re­gional Art Gal­leries on October 13, along with art­work from 16 schools across the South West.

A num­ber of Har­vey stu­dents’ work was sub­mit­ted for the ex­hi­bi­tion with items from Faye, Jaxon Mi­callef, Year 7, Molly Craigie, Year 7, Jayde Pipe, Year 7, and Jade Smith, Year 10, selected.

The dif­fer­ent year groups stud­ied the dif­fer­ent me­dia artists use, which be­came their sub­mis­sions.

Year 7 stud­ied Abo­rig­i­nal artist Lau­rel Nan­nup and cre­ated a ce­ramic sculp­ture and lino print of an an­i­mal, Year 9 stu­dents stud­ied the work of artist Stormie Mills to cre­ate a paint­ing and Year 10 stu­dents stud­ied still life.

Faye said she was sur­prised to win the award, this be­ing the first art com­pe­ti­tion she had en­tered.

“I didn’t ex­pect to win an award but I feel proud of my­self,” she said.

She said the art of Stormie Mills was a spooky and de­press­ing style which she found in­ter­est­ing to study.

Faye said she continued her art out­side school and of­ten sketched at home.

“It’s my pas­sion, I just en­joy do­ing it,” she said.

Vis­ual arts teacher Polly Billing said she was proud of all her stu­dents’ work.

“Be­ing from a small school and com­pet­ing against the big­ger schools in the South West, I thought our stu­dents have done re­ally well,” she said.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to next year and get­ting even more stu­dents in­volved in the ex­hi­bi­tion.”
