Our Lady of Victories Primary School hosts Andy Warhol art exhibition

Our Lady of Victories Primary School, Shortland recently held an art exhibition with Andy Warhol-inspired works by 130 students.

The school's Visual Arts teacher, Mark Fren, worked with students to teach them about Andy Warhol and prepare for the exhibition.

Principal, Gerry Vandermaat, acknowledged the volume of work and commitment from the students and Mr Fren to create the exhibition.

“Our students have been learning about the iconic Andy Warhol this term and were tasked with using his influence to create their own artworks. We pulled together an exhibition with approximately 1,000 of these artworks on display, and our school community had a fantastic night hosting our very own art show.

“There was a great sense of pride as our students took their families around the exhibition. We’re proud of the creativity Our Lady of Victories students have shown and look forward to continuing to nurture their growth and interest in the arts.

"I also want to thank our Creative and Performing Arts teacher, Mr Mark Fren, for his passion in delivering the program and organising the show,” Gerry said. 

Students, parents and grandparents attended the exhibition, which showed off the impressive artworks. Check out some of the images below.
