St John’s College host annual art exhibition

The St John's College learners and parents enjoy the artworks exhibited.

 

The St John’s College celebrated their creative talent through their annual art exhibition on 23 October.

Spokesperson for the school Jacqui Deeks said that the matric and sixth-form learners exhibited work of an exceptionally high standard, that displayed technical brilliance with intense conceptual grappling.

She added, “With themes such as ‘Out of Place’ and ‘Outside of the Centre’, students were encouraged to explore their personal ‘situatedness’ and context within South Africa and the world at large.”

Senior lecturer of visual arts at the University of Johannesburg David Paton gave the open address. Head of visual arts at the school Belinda Donnelly said, “It is with great pride that the Art Department can state, with surety, that our students have learned how to discern between visual pollution and visual integrity.

“In developing some of the skills required for the fourth industrial revolution, such as mental elasticity, problem-solving, creativity, and interdisciplinary knowledge, we know that our students will go into the world better prepared for the changes that they will face.”

She concluded, “We wish them all the best for their future endeavours, and encourage them to always remember the life lessons that were learned in the art class, and in so doing, add to the richness of our country’s future.”
