Mel­bourne Show hope­fuls

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LOCAL LIVING -

Stu­dents at St Joseph’s Catholic Pri­mary School in Trafal­gar will get their first taste of en­ter­ing their artis­tic cre­ations into the Royal Mel­bourne Show.

In­spired by their art teacher Kathy Grass who reg­u­larly en­ters her nee­dle felt­ing work into the show, stu­dents have been hard at work cre­at­ing their Steam Punk cre­ations to also fea­ture in the show.

With more than 4500 arts and craft, cook­ery and pho­to­graphic ex­hibits en­tered into the Royal Mel­bourne Show each year, stu­dents are ex­cited to be part of such a large dis­play for the first time. This year the show runs from Septem­ber 22 to Oc­to­ber 2.

The Steam Punk art pieces are made of a range of re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als, such as card­board and wood, stuck on and painted to look like rusty metal.

Ms Grass said stu­dents had spent an en­tire term de­sign­ing and cre­at­ing their Steam Punk art works.

“Each stu­dent en­ter­ing the show has proudly elected to put their work up for the public to view,” she said.

“They have taken much care with their cre­ations and also with nam­ing their art­works.”

Stu­dents will be ea­gerly await­ing to find out if a mem­ber of their school will be lucky enough to win a prize. Some may also make the jour­ney to the Show to see their work on dis­play.

With Mrs Grass con­tin­u­ing to ex­hibit her nee­dle felt­ing at the show and class­room Grif­fon Brux­el­lois pet ther­apy dog Polly also en­tered in the show, the school stu­dents are hop­ing for some prizes.
