Wearable Art Competition

Congratulations to all the Year 10, 11 and 12 students who participated in this year’s ‘Wearable Art Competition'.

Now in its 13th year, the competition provides an opportunity for talented and creative Art students to display their House spirit and support their House in a non-sport capacity. The standard of costumes keeps getting better every year and the dedication our students show to create them at our Villa Paloma Campus outside of school hours is amazing. This year it was Penman who claimed the coveted trophy, for the seventh year out of those 13, while Flynn and Taylor finished equal second and Burrows came in third.

Our College was very fortunate to have four judges all with a background in creative Arts generously give up their time. A big thank you to Amber Smith, Marnie Platt, Ursula Robbins and Felicity Mawson for judging the costumes. Their criteria included visual impact, creativity, innovative and effective use of materials, evidence of effort in design and construction as well as the cohesiveness and effectiveness of group presentation, music, and movement.  

Students design and create three expressive costumes, based on a particular theme and the costume ideas are interwoven with the colours of our four House groups. In Friday’s climax, the students paraded their incredible art works in a colourful carnival of creativity held during lunchtime in the Penman Quad.

This year’s the themes were ‘Mexican Day Of The Dead’ (Penman), ‘Recycling’ (Taylor), ‘Continuous’ (Flynn) and ‘Egyptian’ (Burrows). Check out the finished products in the pictures below.
