PLHS Involved in Collaborative Art Project

During Activities Week last year, PLHS staff and students contributed their artistic skills towards a large collaborative community art project – we are pleased to announce that the vibrant and creative finished product will be officially unveiled on the main Tunarama stage at 4pm this Friday afternoon (January 24th).

In mid-2019, Year 9 St. Joseph’s School student Charlee Watt was successful in obtaining a $5000 grant from Carclew Futures – she sought to create a youth-focused art piece in the form of a large canvas banner that could be used at youth music events. During Term 4 last year, Charlee helped to facilitate and coordinate the painting of the Barngarla-inspired piece, in conjunction with students from PLHS, St. Joseph’s School and Navigator College.

The first image here shows Charlee along with (L-R) artist facilitator (and PLHS staff member) Ms Jenny Silver, and cultural consultants Emma and Kia Richards, putting the first touches of paint onto the canvas. The second image shows (L-R) Jenny working on the canvas with Year 9 PLHS students Chloe Poel and Lily Jenkins.

The student artists who contributed to the canvas are invited to attend the unveiling on Friday – all welcome. Congratulations to everyone involved is this wonderful community initiative.
