Coast inspires art win -

Inspiration was only a short walk away for a coastal school’s award-winning entry in a regional art competition.

Surf Coast Secondary College Year 8 students created a giant turtle, which won the secondary schools section of a fibre artwork competition organised through the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority’s regional Waterwatch program.

The water-themed competition is on display at Geelong’s National Wool Museum during June in conjunction with the Our Water exhibition, teaching people about Australia’s water use through fun and interactive stations.

Surf Coast Secondary College materials and technology teacher Emy McPhee said her two Year 8 classes competed against each other to submit pieces, with the other entry an ocean-themed dress coat.

Ms McPhee said the students led the entire project and loved the chance to get creative, with the topic of water easy for them to gain inspiration.

“Because they all live near the ocean they’re very sea-oriented, it comes into a lot of things we do,” she said.

“It was great to see all the kids working together. Sometimes it’s hard as a teacher to get everyone participating but with this they were all really into it.”

The Our Water exhibition and Waterwatch Fibre Artwork display coincided with World Environment Day on June 5. The exhibition runs until June 27.

Winners of the Corangamite CMA Waterwatch Fibre Artwork Competition were Joy McPadden – Returning the Water (Open), Surf Coast Secondary College Year 8A – The Blue Turtle (Secondary) and Ashby Primary School – Wonderful Water (Primary).


Mural sparks search for art class of '95 - This is Gloucestershire

STUNNING bike murals have been rediscovered during a revamp at the former Stroud Saddlery shop.

The artwork was originally painted for the Big Bike Company in Cainscross Road by pupils from Marling School next door.

  1. Bryan Billau with one of the murals painted by Marling School pupils in 1997.

The boys were invited to decorate the giant wall when Bryan Billau opened the business about 17 years ago.

"I remember looking at this big white space and thinking that just through the wall was Marling School," he said.

"Then I hit on the idea of asking pupils there to come up with some artwork. I believe it turned into an A-Level project at the time."

Now he is organised building work in preparation for a new tenant and has uncovered the striking murals.

"I'd be interested to know where the teenagers who painted them are now and if they've gone on to become artists," Mr Billau said.

He is liaising with the grammar school's staff to find the art class of 1995.
