The Visual Arts team at Wyndham College receive the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation Award for excellence in ARTEXPRESS for 2018.
Karen Smith, Principal, Wyndham College
ARTEXPRESS I think is really important to certainly reward the kids anyway along the way. Many of our students who come into art are very new to the world of art and it's just something to aim for and achieve and have some recognition. This award is amazing, it acknowledges and recognises not only the work of the students but also my staff and it's a really really great honour.
Ron Pratt, Head teacher Creative and performing arts, Wyndham College
What is a 60 hour course for their body of work turns into a lot more. And that investment in time is such a positive outcome for them personally, and to have it on a wall is a huge – I guess – full stop to their school career. But it shows for them that they can really believe in what they do and whatever journey they want to take in the future and they show that they can be successful.
