Weekend of your life on canvas
IF you were asked to put your weekend on paper what would you do?
This week Year 10 art students from Bishop Druitt College have attempted to do just this by painting a scene which depicts one weekend in their life.
The exhibition is a major project for the 40 students who have spent the past 11 weeks coming up with an idea which works on canvas.
Art teacher at the school, Marilyn Gibson, said this was the second year this theme had been used but the most important part was that students were solely responsible for the exhibition.
"This project is theirs, from the curating to the theme and even the invitations," Ms Gibson said.
"They have been responsible for everything."
She said this year the standard of works had also been high, with many students moving beyond simple ideas and being broader with paint, colours and issues.
"Some students have moved on from issues like friends and just a normal weekend and they have looked at broader issues."
The major projects are worth 30 per cent of the student's final mark.
The display of art will be officially opened at the school today at 6pm, the public is welcome to attend.
There will also be a performance by Year 10 drama students to launch the exhibition.
Ms Gibson said the exhibition will be on display for a week before the Year 11 students display their photography.
