Week 7 showcased the original talents of our developing artists at the annual Inspirations Art Exhibition held in the Scotch College Gallery. On display, we saw a wide variety of exceptional artworks created by Scotch students from the Junior, Middle and Senior School for 2016.

The selected artworks demonstrated a highly skilful, exciting and diverse range of mediums which included; sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, painting and drawing.

These works presented the students' own personal journey into the wonderful world of Visual Arts. There was particular evidence of a global awareness, an influence inspired by works of many different genres and cultures.

The collection of works, themed together, enabled the boys 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.

This year's exhibition truly captured the boys' individuality and highlighted the wide variety of mediums offered to all Scotch students within the Visual Arts programme. The boy's enthusiasm for Visual Arts was highly evident. Not only do the Visual Arts induct valuable skills, they give the boys a valuable lens through which to see and enjoy the world around them throughout their lives.
