On Saturday 24 November, three of our Year 9 students accompanied the Visual Art teacher Mrs. Caitlin Chodakowsky to enter the Midland Junction Art Centre’s Worn Out Worn Art competition.
This wearable art competition saw 37 entrants, from across the state, construct and enter garments out of recycled materials, they were then modelled in an evening performance. Claire S., Erin B. and Natasja J. (garment modelled by Grace G.) all did a fantastic job creating wearable sculptures out of recycled materials such as paper, playing cards, newspaper, and even shade cloth. The girls went up against some tough competition.
Congratulations to Natasja J. for winning a Jacksons Art Award for ‘Innovation’ with her futuristic Queen of Hearts garment. We also wanted to congratulate Mrs. Chodakowsky on winning an award for ‘design and originality’ with her black and gold dress made from recycled marking papers.
The girls then had some fun with Mr. Pethick creating some amazing light painting photographs. Some of the garments have since been chosen to be displayed alongside the Art Centre’s recent art exhibition and will then be on display at Midland Gate Shopping Centre for a month.
