Teenage art shows class


Geelong teenagers entered more than 100 artworks into the Ocean Grove Neighbourhood Centre Youth Art Show, held earlier this month.
Local artist Bill Linford and Melbourne-based graffiti artist Tim Bond judged the entries.
“The standard of the art was incredible, and the youth of the Bellarine should be proud,” Tim said.
The art show opened on 1 April 2016 with about 150 visitors admiring the works on display that weekend.
“The event was a huge success” Bree Fankhauser said.
“It’s great to see the community support up and coming local young artists. “Hopefully, it will bring confidence to them to display their art.”
The show was open to aspiring artists aged 11 to 18, with five different categories: sculpture, graffiti art, painting and drawing, photography and graphic art.
Lethbridge teenager Jadee Warakea won the Best in Show Prize for her piece called “Door Jam”.
Bree thanked the Rotary Club of Ocean Grove for sponsoring the prize, as well as the State Government for their support for the art show during National Youth Week.
