The four-day event will showcase visual arts of kindergarten to Year 12 students from 29 south metropolitan schools

Visual arts teacher Danielle Eitzen said students worked in rotations to create their Soweto Gospels inspired pieces of which they will parade during the opening night.

‘The students’ artworks have a great visual impact and were inspired by African cultures, which tied in with our World Vision awareness week,’ she said.

Mrs Eitzen said her students had put in a lot of time and effort for the parade that was a highlight and crowd favourite of the exhibition.

‘The event will open on Monday, October 21 at 6pm and will be open to the public on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until 7pm and on Friday until noon.

The 35th Art Blast exhibition will feature students’ artworks from 21 primary schools, five senior high schools, an education support centre and a language development centre.
