Melbourne Show hopefuls
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.
