year 12 Perspectives 2018

6 April – 1 June 2019

Year 12 Perspectives is your yearly taste of art by some of the best, brightest and most talented graduating high school artists in the State. An annual barometer of what our youth are thinking and feeling, it is also a rich celebration of the role the arts play in the development of individual identities.

Applications are now closed

Year 12 Perspectives 2018 will go on display at AGWA, 6 April 1 June 2019.



Drawing Breath is a new creative learning approach at AGWA, harnessing MINDFULNESS to enhance reflecting, analysing, interpreting and evaluating works of art. Part 1 Introduces the Mindfulness approach, and a Drawing Breath activity. Part 2 is a Visual Analysis of Yr 12 Perspectives, 2017 and AGWA Collection artwork with Artist Educator Lilly Blue.

Drawing Breath is proudly supported by Healthway Act-Belong-Commit

Part 1 shows footage from Year 12 Perspectives 2017 opening night celebration including interviews from some of the exhibiting students. Part 2 is a visual analysis workshop with AGWA Educator Lisa Young. Join Lisa as she analyses two State Art Collection works using the STICI framework.

Use the video as an in-class learning tool to help develop your students’ visual arts language. Or bring your group to the Gallery for a first-hand experience. To book or for more information, click here.
