The event showcases the skill and
creativity of every Ar t student in the
school in pursuits such as skateboard
design, digital photography, printmaking,
sculpture, tattoo ar t, mur als, painting,
ceramics and t-shir t design. "All the
work you see is gener ated within the
classroom as par t of the cur riculum,
which is what I love about the exhibition,"
said Mr s Cathy O'Gor man, Creative Ar ts
and LOTE Co-ordinator at St Paul's and
the driving force behind the show.
With the works of all students included,
the display creates a great sense of

the students. "It gives students an
oppor tunity to see creativity, problem
solving, hard work, sense of playfulness,
skill, imagining, politics, dreaming and
risk-taking," said Mrs O'Gor man. She's
proud of the oppor tunity offer ed to staff
and students to work in a collegial and
suppor tive manner.
