COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS

JANE HERAGHTY - VISITING ARTIST
Mount St Bernard art students, were recently treated to a visit, from Jane Heraghty, an artist from Cairns.  The students were absolutely fascinated by Jane's freedom and expression as a sculptural artist. Collaboratively, students selected recycled objects such as; toys, ornaments, plastic spoons, etc. to create sculptural art works. The students were encouraged to use coloured pigments in plaster-of-paris, to stick, paint and join their objects together. It was wonderful to see the students explore abstract thoughts, and construction of mixed-media sculptures. Breaking down the thought processes of Realism. Jane allowed the students to stand around a table and move freely in the space, cracking porcelain with hammers and unscrewing plastic toys.

  • Thelma described the workshop as, 'it's a bit weird, but good to use recycled toys, instead of throwing them in the bin, it's a messy wonderland!'

  • Nathan said: "It was a bit messy, but it was great to have a chance to express your imagination in any form you wanted. There are no limits or any boundaries to what she can create."

  • Ursula said: "It was interesting to experience what an artist does every day."

The competition was hot and our students shined on both days: Elizabeth 1st Javelin, Romatu 4th Javelin, Liz 4th Javelin & 7th Shot Put, Manaeda 5th 100m & 6th Long Jump, Pearl 2nd Javelin, Jim 4th 100m & 2nd Javelin, Maryanne 7th Javelin, Barry 5th Javelin, Irene 8th Shot Put.

A big congratulations to all these students, they all finished within the top 10 in Peninsula an outstanding effort. A huge congratulations to Jim who is off to the State championships. Jim will compete in the Javelin, Long jump and Triple Jump at this event. He will need to travel to Brisbane and is currently fundraising to enable himself to get there. The State Championships are in Brisbane this year and will cost Jim's family around $900 to get him there, so if your see Jim or know his family please buy a raffle ticket from him to help his cause.
