Art Show Opening

photo (1)Friday afternoon was the official opening of the Korumburra Primary School annual Art Show. The entire school was in attendance in the gym as we celebrated the beginning of a two week showcase period of our student’s creations being on display.

It was all kicked off by some Year 6 “Spring Chickens” who danced us into the event and who looked very bright and colourful to match the theme of “Spring”. As well as Mr Gray and Mr Pirouet, there was a guest speaker by the name of Emily Koenders who spoke to the students about being a professional artist and how she started by entering art shows when she was a teenager.

We then were taken via “live feed” to the gallery where a Year 6 student interviewed some of the individual “artists” who were showing their work – and was thrown out by security when he tried to enter the second gallery room! (It wasn’t officially opened yet of course!) The whole school sung a special song they had been working on in Music sessions lately and then finally it was time to cut the ribbon! Mrs Simcock and Mrs Warren both held the ribbon while Emily cut it as our official guest.

All classes will be walking down to the Art Show to view the pieces and see it all put together during their Art sessions over the next two weeks. If members of the public would like to have a look at our student’s wonderful artistic work they are more than welcome – the gallery will be open during the day and over the weekend at various times:

  • Monday – Friday: 10am – 5pm
  • Saturday – Sunday: 10am – 2pm

We would like to say thank you to the Parents and Friends who have volunteered some of their time to sit with the Art Show so it can be open to the public throughout the day. We appreciate your help in showing our student’s work to the public!

A massive thank you and well done must also go to Mrs Warren and Mrs Simcock for putting together an amazing Art Show this year. We have an amazing program here at KPS and it definitely shows in the work that is displayed not only in the Art Show but all over our school throughout the year. Congratulations on your efforts this year!
