Celebrating creative achievements

Year 12 art and design students were congratulated by professional artist Jennifer Keeler-Milne, opening their exhibition of final works.

“You’ve gone through the creative process to make something from nothing… It’s not easy,” she said. “Because of your work, you challenge and stretch us, amaze and delight us.”

She praised the outstanding commitment of “exceptional” IGS Art and Design staff Craig Malyon and Ksenija Doic.

Principal Shauna Colnan thanked Jennifer, quoting Gerhard Richter who said “art is the highest form of hope”.

“The future is in great hands with our students as they go out into the world,” Ms Colnan said, acknowledging the talents and efforts of students and the care offered by their supporters, including IGS staff and families.

“With this kind of self expression and freedom they can do absolutely anything.”
