Schools Month 2019: "The Young Artist" (Yarram Secondary College)


Schools Month is an annual fixture at Yarram Courthouse Gallery where the various schools in the district take turns in displaying their students work for the benefit of the community.

This year we have the pleasure of seeing the artworks of the students of:


“The Young Artist” is a collection of artworks across mediums and year levels. Year 7 students have been working on some lino prints, most of them for the first time. On the other side of the scope, our senior students will be presenting a range of works from drawings to paintings. Year 8 students will be showcasing their photographs in a range of creative presentation styles and Year 9 students have made some Zines. The collection is an example of the many ideas and styles that young people bring to the artistic community and we are proud to share it.

Judging Results

Judged 8th May, 2019

Congratulations to all the artists who entered this year’s Miniatures! Our job as judges wasn’t easy due to the large number and high standard of entries! As judges we initially looked at all the artworks independently, then short-listed artworks that were on all our lists, and then refined our results from there.

Honourable Mentions:

  • ‘Woodside Landscape’ - Artist: Bianca Biesuz-Stefani.

“We loved the sense of depth in this piece and attention to detail. The unusual timber base and framing works well.”

  • ‘The Landscape’ - Artist: Julie Lundgren-Coulter.

“This is a successful composition with a lovely use of colour in the foreground. A great sense of depth is achieved too.”

3rd place: ‘Green Croaker’ - Artist: Cathy Trembath

“This piece is very well composed and shows strong use of the media, with successful use of colour and attention to detail.”

2nd place: ‘Dandelion’ - Artist: Sue Juha

“This photo is beautifully composed, with excellent focus and use of line. The tonal contrast and sense of movement is just wonderful.”

1st place: ‘Contemplation’ - Artist: Veronica Clarkson

“This piece displays an excellent use of collage media, with small pieces of printed paper working very successfully into the overall composition. The title is very fitting as you are drawn towards the figure’s eyes. Fantastic use of line and colour too.”

Judges: Kim Baggaley, Justin Holt, Andrea McCallum.
