Top Arts 2018 presents a rich range of diverse and accomplished works of art from students who have completed Art or Studio Arts as part of the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) 2017. Fifty-four inspiring young artists from throughout metropolitan and regional Victoria have delved deeply into some of the greatest concerns of contemporary times. Environmental degradation, psychological resilience, the influence of mass media and materialism are a few. Celebrations of human diversity, transition and surprising views of our world are also wonderfully captured and presented. Our next generation of artists have courageously experimented with traditional and unusual materials. Some of them share their experience.
