Class of 2021 Arts graduates in the spotlight
Our 2021 graduates are making waves in the Arts arena, with a number of achievements in theatre, visual arts and performing arts.
Willis Pearce (Wheelers Hill Campus) will be performing his monologue ‘The Threepenny Opera – POLLY’ as part of Top Class Theatre Studies 2022, which showcases the creativity and originality of the top VCE performing arts students across Victoria.
Madi Jeffares’s (Class of 2021, Caulfield Campus) photogravure print was selected for exhibition at Top Arts 2022 at the National Gallery of Victoria. Madi was one of 30 students selected from over 1300 entrants for this annual exhibition, which celebrates exceptional art-making practices from VCE Arts and Studio Arts across Victoria. Madi was also the recipient of our Caulfield Grammar School Art Technician’s ‘Packing Room’ Prize for her incredible artwork ‘Soteria’s Garden’ (pictured below) and has been invited to exhibit as part of TOPshots – Monash Gallery of Art in a couple of months. Madi is keen to share her passion and was one of four students selected to do the KickstART Art Education Victoria presentation last month, giving tips to current students on building their folio.
Dance Co-Captains Abbey Shaw and Rebekah Sharpe (Wheelers Hill Campus) were accepted into Jason Coleman’s Ministry of Dance and Spectrum’s Full-Time Dance Studio respectively. You can read their stories here.
Applications for Secondary Scholarships in Theatre, Dance and Visual Arts are currently open (2023 entry) and close in June.
