Esperance high school students showcase talents at annual exhibition

The artistic talents of more than 70 Esperance Senior High School students were on display at the Cannery Arts Centre from November 23-28, as part of the school's annual Creative Works exhibition.

Marking the second year of the exhibition, colourful work from Years 7 to 12 students filled the Cannery's gallery space.

Students, teachers and the public celebrated the opening on November 22, with crowds exploring the diverse pieces to the sounds of the school's jazz band.

The exhibition featured a range of work including painting, woodwork, metalwork, 3D-printing, lazer cutting, sculpture, textiles and jewelry.

School head of technology and enterprise Daniel Seinor said the exhibition was a showcase of the diverse art opportunities available at the school.

"I think the variety is always the most impressive part of the exhibition," he said.

"There's a lot of breadth in what our school offers, there is a big design and technology program and big arts program and to be able to exhibit that work is really good for the kids.

"There were a lot of students who had work in the exhibition, so they made the effort with their parents to come down.

"They were definitely really proud to show their work and they really appreciated the fact that they can have their work exhibited in a space like the Cannery."
