The arts are an integral part of a Melville Senior High School holistic education. The arts encourage creativity and expression, and Melville students often find themselves in the spotlight for creating outstanding pieces. Recently a call was put out for students in Years 7 – 12 to enter the Young Originals Exhibition. An exhibition for aspiring young artists enrolled in Western Australian public schools. The exhibition celebrates the creative and innovative art programs taught in Western Australian public schools and promotes excellence in the visual arts across a range of artistic mediums.
Four students across Years 10, 11 and 12 had there submissions selected for the exhibition. Images of the work can be seem below. Congratulations to Year 11 Petra Kovacs, Year 12 students Ellie Irving, Carl Eulogio and Kita Healy, and Year 10 student Maddison Tapplin on this fantastic achievement. Congratulations must also go out to teacher and mentor, Mrs Melissa McCarthy for her dedication and enthusiasm in the students artistic education.
