Students at Damascus College have finished months of hard work and now their masterpieces hang proudly on display in the school’s auditorium.
The college’s VCE Visual Arts exhibition opened last night and works will remain on display until next Wednesday.
The exhibition includes major pieces for students enrolled in art, studio art photography and visual communication design.
Close to 50 students have their work displayed, some from more than one subject, as a large part of the year’s planning and construction comes to a close.
Works vary from iPhone cover designs to a car door being used as a photography frame to add symbolism.
Teacher Anne Griffin said it was a relief to finally get to this point.
“I’m very proud of the students,” she said.
“There’s a lot of diversity in their designs and they’ve been very creative – they’ve done a great job.”
Year 11 student Georgia Day said her photography creation was produced by taking separate pictures of two girls, then combining them using photoshop.
Lastly, the piece is presented using a lightbox to illuminate it from behind.
“I’m not sure where I got the idea for the lightbox,” Georgia said.
“But I’m happy with the finished product because it’s taken most of the year to get to this point.”
The work is graded and will contribute towards the students’ overall VCE score, but upcoming exams still make up the majority of their marks.
