Tuesday 16 October marked the opening of the Matric Art Exhibition of 2018, showcasing the undeniable talent and hard work of this year’s matric Art students.
The evening was opened with speeches from Mr Cain and guest speaker Zapiro (Westerford parent, Mr Jonathan Shapiro), after which people were free to help themselves to the variety of delicious eats, and to admire the artworks.
Each Art pupil filled their own designated area with their various art practicals from the matric year, including their portfolios which showed their ideas, the process work and planning that went into creating the final artwork.
Both seminar rooms as well as Mr Cain’s Art room and the loft were packed with Westerfordians, parents, friends and relatives of the artists who had all come to view the exhibition. This support and recognition was well-deserved by the Art pupils, who spent hours working during and after school to produce this beautiful range of artworks.
It was a highly successful evening, enjoyed by all. We wish the matrics well as they begin to write their final exams.
