Clare and Jack achieved exceptional results in Visual Arts and were active members of Art Club and exhibitors in the 2022 Brightspace Exhibition. Clare also took on the challenging role of Chief Editor of The Phoenix student magazine. Both Clare and Jack were selected to exhibit their work at Top Arts, which showcases extraordinary works of art and folios that achieved excellent results in VCE Art or VCE Studio Arts. The Top Arts Exhibition is hosted at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, Fed Square.

Luca’s work Mechanical Dreams was exhibited at Top Designs, hosted at the Melbourne Museum, and celebrates the innovation of Victoria’s emerging designers. The event displays 69 exceptional VCE students from 2022 and each work addresses socially responsive design themes and expresses a deep understanding of social and environmental issues.

Lastly, Mia’s work Field Dream was exhibited at Top Shots, at the Museum of Australian Photography, which celebrates and showcases exceptional photographic work produced by students who have completed VCE subjects in Art, Media and Studio Arts.

At St Michael’s, we are proud that our graduates leave with the determination to follow their passions and the confidence to lead in their fields of endeavour. This next chapter is an exciting one for our Old Michaelians and we cannot wait to see what they accomplish.
