Talented Teens

Abbotts College Pretoria East Annual Art Exhibition

Andrea Vermaak, editor of Supernova, the mag for curious kids, attended her second annual art exhibition at Abbotts College Pretoria East and was once again overwhelmed by the learners’ artistic flair. Grade 10 to 12 learners of the Art and Design Department impressed the judges too, who had a difficult time deciding whom to award for their incredibly hard work.

The following learners received an award for their projects:

Candice Smith (Art Teacher) and Erin Davis
Grade 10 Visual Art
1st Erin Davis 
2nd Vhuthu Mafunisa 
3rd Brendon Jardine 

Candice Smith (Art Teacher) and Tiitesto Somo

Grade 11 Visual Art
1st Tiitesto Somo
2nd Tasia Wyrley-Birch
3rd Courtney Catt

Candice Smith (Art Teacher) and Kayla Cunningham

Grade 12 Visual Art
1st Kayla Cunningham
2nd Kendra van der Merwe
3rd Lilleen van den Berg

“Every learner who participated in the exhibition has an incredibly bright future, should they wish to take up the arts,” says Andrea. “If they show as much enthusiasm and dedication to their work in any other subject too, they will excel in anything they endeavour to do. We wish the learners of Abbotts College all the best in their careers and welcome anyone studying design or illustration to do an internship at BK Publishing.”

We can't wait to see what the learners hold in store for next year's exhibition at this unique school which refreshingly offers opportunities for creativity, individuality and self-expression.
