Rachel Wilkinson has drawn horror and scream images for her major work. Her seven drawings all feature themes from horror movies and scenes. “It’s what I’m into ... for me it’s easy, I like horror movies and video games,” she said. “I’m pretty happy with them.”
Spectrum by Tamara Gear Tamara’s colourful wall hanging was made with textiles and fibre. “The name is from Florence and the Machine’s song of the same name,” she said. “[My artwork] is about fireworks and how I was always with my family ... it’s a way of them being with me when they’re not here.”
Elemental by Skye Sayed Skye has completed four colourful oil and acrylic paintings for her major work. “I like the idea of the tattoos and the moving from different forms of art,” she said.
The Companions by Blake Ravot Blake’s has completed two paintings, one an oil on canvas self portrait, the other an acrylic on canvas Japanese-style anime artwork. “It took a few weeks [to come up with ideas for the works], I didn’t really know where to start,” he said. “Everyone I know is in there [the anime]. I tried to base it around what they’re actually like.”
CREATIVITY can spring from anywhere, according to students at Canobolas Rural Technology High School.
The Central Western Daily caught up with students as they were putting the final touches to their Higher School Certificate visual arts major works yesterday.
Head of arts Geoff Pelley said he was impressed with this year’s artworks.
“They’ve really come a long way and they’ve really proved themselves,” he said.
