Paper Dresses on display in the Foyer Gallery

On display in the SAC Foyer Gallery is a wonderful exhibition of paper dresses designed and created by the Year 11 Design students. The girls were given the task to create a dress for a celebrity to wear to the Met Gala; the dress was to be only made only out of paper. We congratulate these students on the skill and creativity shown in their creations, each design is very unique and eye catching.

great skill and creativity shown in these stunning creations!

Learning from the masters!

During Week 9 a selection of Year 11 and 12 Visual Art students attended life drawing workshops at the Art Gallery of South Australia. These workshops were a great opportunity for our students to be taught by practising artist Elle Noir and to view a range of beautiful drawings from the Art Gallery’s collection that are not usually seen by the general public.

An enriching opportunity – The Centenarian Portrait Project By Teenagers

Over the past six months two members of the St Aloysius community, Year 10 student Olivia and 2021 Graduate Molly Hambidge-Hay have been involved in an exciting art project, The Centenarian Portrait Project By Teenagers. They were part of a group of teenage artists from across South Australia that created portraits of 100 year old’s. It is part of a national portrait project launched by Social Art Enterprise Embraced Inc that aims to stop ageism and bridge the gap between the old and young members of our community. Each teenage artist was paired with a centenarian and over the last few months they met regularly. The beautiful artworks that resulted from this special interaction are on display at the Drill Hall at the Torrens Parade Ground until the end of June.

“Through every meeting I’ve had with Helene Silwedel, each one brought me closer to the way she sees the world. Thank you to Helene, the facility staff, and The Centenarian Portrait Project for giving me this enriching opportunity, and a new friend made.” Olivia (Year 10 student)
