Student Gallery

Young artists, celebrated.

Our Student Gallery is located in the School Library, where all ArtSpark entries and further artworks from the children of Scarborough Public School created in the Art Literacy and iCreate programmes will be on display. Come and see their imaginative creations and support the work of our budding young artists.

Art Literacy Program

Our Art Literacy program is a special part of school learning for Scarborough Public School students and is funded with proceeds of the annual Art Show. 

Run by local artist, university lecturer and educator Gabrielle Adamik,  it inspires our students to take risks with their learning and embrace a world where the process of investigating, discussing and making is seen as more valuable than the final products themselves. This creative program exposes them to a broad vocabulary of expression and helps develop their capacity to communicate across all curriculum areas. Students are encouraged to think about big ideas, nurture their imagination, problem-solve and slow down and use all of their senses to experience the world. They can take risks, experiment and play, following a path just to see where it may go. They learn to value and develop confidence in their unique way of seeing the world.

View student work from previous years in our Art Literacy gallery.

The ArtSpark competition for school students is also displayed in the Student Gallery and is a fun annual feature of the Art Show. Come and see the work of young artists from our wider community of schools and vote for your favourite in our People's Choice award. Competition winners receive prizes generously donated by Levers Art Supplies.

 Visit the ArtSpark page for more details about the competition.

iCreate is Scarborough Public School's own art program, with projects led by creative parents and teachers who volunteer their time to help. It has been running since 2010 with great success. School students work on special projects in different mediums and we display these works alongside the ArtSpark competition in the Student Gallery.
