Focus on visual arts
YOUNG artists who were encouraged to practise their passion outside the classroom have been recognised with awards for taking part in the Northern Perspectives art exhibition.
The fourth Northern Perspectives exhibition opened at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre Gallery last month. It showcases works by more than 50 Year 11 and 12 visual arts students.
Paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, electronics and textile creations are among the works on show until March 29.
The winner of the Overall Encouragement Award was Ashdale Secondary College student Joanne Le for her mixed media exhibit Jungle Asians.
There were two winners of the Resident Encouragement Award.
They were Ashdale Secondary College student Yasmine Mnahy and Wanneroo Secondary College student Tia Pindoriya.
Yasmine won for her work Women in STEAM, while Tia was awarded for her creation Holy Cow.
The People’s Choice Award will be presented to the artist who receives the most votes from people who visit the exhibition.
