The Spirituality in Art Award is an annual acquisitive prize of $250 for the best religious or spiritual art work submitted in 2018. Entries can be in any media and in any style. Through creating these works, students are challenged to consider religion and spirituality in significant ways across personal, sacred, social, political and contemporary contexts.
The winning entry for 2018 was Year 8 student, Tarryn Farley’s photograph, ‘Nature Does Nothing in Vain’. Tarryn’s work explores that everything has a purpose in life.
In addition, there were two Mission Team Encouragement Awards presented in 2018 to Josephine De Graeve for ‘Balance’ and Lucinda Downey for ‘Respect for Equality and the Treatment of the Elderly’. The winning and Highly Commended works were announced at assembly in front of the student body and also again at the Visual Art Exhibition on Thursday 11 October by Acting Assistant Principal - RE, Karen Davidson.
Our Highly Commended recipients were: Anna Baldwin, Abby Berthelsen, Annika Copland, Isabel Cummins, Josephine De Graeve, Ella Dickson, Emmy Groenewoud, Alexandra Haynes, Ella Hislop, Zoe Nicholson, Miranda Rodwell, Tejasvi Singh, Hannah Smith, Emily Walls and Kathryn Winks.
A special thank you must go to all the Visual Art staff for their constant support of the students and nurturing their artistic growth.
