To coincide with Faith’s Year 12 student’s final week of school celebrations, the graduating Art and Design students installed an excellent display of practical work in the Barossa Arts Centre Foyer. Given the circumstances and restrictions due to COVID-19, there were some SACE changes which added flexibility to the Practical responses.

Twelve students participated in the exhibition exploring an exciting and diverse range of topics and materials. The scale of art projects was ambitious, as students applied their concepts to a body of work driven by highly relevant, engaging and relatable issues. Indeed, this year all school students had to deal with many challenges and uncertainty and at Faith, this transpired into highly thought-provoking art projects including an interactive wardrobe installation, innovative photography and three-dimensional collage, mixed media installations, paintings, drawings and pyrography. The Design projects included professionally printed playing cards, a travel-inspired journal and accessories, ladies swimwear collection, fashionable dog clothing range and gift wrapping designs. Themes recognised environmental issues such as drought, deforestation, endangered aquatic species and ocean pollution. The impact of social media and domestic violence on women and children, anxiety and mental health inspired a range of compelling responses, all amplified as a result of the global pandemic.
