Wednesday 5 September saw the official opening of the 2018 Inspirations Art Exhibition. Held in the Scotch College Gallery, the annual exhibition showcases the original talents of our developing young artists. On display are a wide variety of exceptional artworks from each sub school demonstrating a skilful, exciting and diverse range of mediums, which included photography, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, painting and drawing.

The artworks on display highlighted the students' ability to think critically, creatively and empathize through the demonstration of an understanding of global perspectives.  The range of works on view enables each boy to question and reflect upon their own approach to each subject matter, valuing the importance of the continuum of the Visual Arts throughout the college.

I encourage you to visit the gallery and celebrate the achievements of all students throughout the College. Art exhibitions allow the boys to develop cultural fluency; understanding how to create art and use it to connect, communicate and function effectively in the globalised 21st Century.

The 2018 Inspirations Exhibition will be on display during College opening hours until the end of Winter Term.
