Top Arts 2012

Top Arts 2012

A major event in the annual school calendar, Top Arts 2012 again presents outstanding work completed by young student artists as part of their assessment for VCE Art and Studio Arts.

VCE Art requires students to produce a body of work including at least two finished artworks that demonstrate the student’s exploration and progressive refinement of their personal ideas and concepts. Students make critical annotations to support their ongoing evaluation and reflection upon their artmaking using the study construct of the Analytical Frameworks.

VCE Studio Arts requires students to present an exploration proposal that identifies their ideas and focus for artmaking, supporting an individual design process and culminating in the production of a cohesive folio of finished artworks.

This exhibition highlights the NGV’s strong commitment and support of contemporary art, arts education and showcases the ideas and attitudes of young people. From an initial selection of over 3,000 works and through a rigorous selection process and short listing procedure it is anticipated approximately 60 students are represented in the exhibition with a diversity of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, multimedia and installation.
