Bridie Le Cornu won third place in the Year 7 and 8 Make Your Own Picture book competition for her entry “KOORT”.
Her story examined the perspectives of an indigenous girl living in a remote community verses a city child and how their lives were impacted by the 1967 referendum for Aboriginal rights.
It will be on display in the library later this week with the other entries.
Last Friday we had the privilege of Mark Tweedie, West Australian visual artist visiting Carramar to run a painting workshop with our year 10 and 11 Visual Art students. Mark Tweedie is a visual artist whose practice explores themes of family, mortality and ageing in a style that focus’ on tone and form using a contrast of soft washes and thick impasto.
The 3 hour workshop helped the students develop the confidence when painting portraits as well as exploring a more challenging style.
A big congratulations to all the boys and girls who competed in the WA Volleyball Cup last Friday. St Stephen’s Carramar sent two teams to compete.
