On 29th August, Learning Support Art Exhibition showcased year 11/12 and selected year 10 students’ work on ‘Transition to Adulthood’. Students explored the colour revolution and patterns in the modern age. Students use technology as a tool to communicate and present information. They recorded their progress and their artistic journey of creating contemporary artworks on ipads, which represent their journey into adulthood. Each student investigated new techniques and experimented with different and/or multiple materials.
The art exhibition also featured Miss Lin’s year 7/8 History ‘Tile Project’ on the Ming Dynasty. Students designed a Chinese theme - Ming Dynasty inspired ceramic tile exploring the highly popular and recognisable blue-and-white decoration. Students studied the Ming Dynasty in class and further researched popular Chinese animals such as dragons, phoenix and tiger, completed with Chinese characters. Students used stencil to transfer the images onto the tiles and incorporated the traditional blue and white palette to represent the Ming Dynasty porcelain effect.
The ‘Transition to Adulthood’ art project also had a theory component requiring students to write a short artist statement describing their artwork and explaining where their inspiration comes from, a selection of brief quotes can be seen below:
This installation explores my interest for Star Wars and how I came to love the series from a young age to an adult. I created a series of work, which explores my early memories of time spent with Dad watching the Star Wars series and these are precious memories which I can carry on to my adulthood.”

My artwork explores the lights of Hong Kong city and it is inspired by Jackson Pollock's drip style paintings. I created six mix media paintings showcasing city of Hong Kong from my perspective as a young adult.

My work is inspired by nature and being outdoors. From a young age I enjoyed playing sport outdoors especially cricket and I always admired nature. My ink prints explore the idea of “We are all connected to nature”.
