A new partnership is giving hundreds
of students at Lake Tuggeranong
College the chance to present their art
in a professional setting.
The Tone, Colour and Space festival
at Tuggeranong Arts Centre, featuring
photography and digital art, through to
glass and ceramics, is being used as a
way of exposing students to the wider
world, industry and authentic
With more than half the students at
the school of 900 participating in a
performing or visual art subject,
College principal Julie Murkins said
the exhibition would add another layer
of authenticity to students education.
"We re delighted to be able to test
the talents of our art students in the
broader world and reinforce our
mission to prepare young people for
their next stage in life -- adulthood,"
Ms Murkins said.
Lake Tuggeranong College has
recently shifted from a darkroom to a
digital studio, making way for students
to dabble in up-to-date methods of
Year 11 student Nicola Theile
moved to Canberra from Jindabyne, in
the Snowy Mountains, specifically to
study photography at Lake
Tuggeranong College. The 16-year-
old said she was considering a career
"I ve always been interested in it
because I ve never been good at
painting landscapes or anything, so I
picked up the camera and started
taking pictures instead. I guess I just
have an eye, because they ve always
turned out all right."
Nicola has at least three photos on
display at the current exhibition at
Tuggeranong Arts Centre, a mix of
landscapes and studio portraits.
"I ve always done outside stuff so
coming in and experimenting with the
studio is so cool. It s so different. It s
very hard, I ve always just seen stuff
and I take a picture of it, whereas in the
studio you have to compose everything
and you re making the picture yourself
more than just taking a picture of
something. It s difficult, but it s fun."
Tuggeranong Arts Centre chief
executive Rauny Worm said she was
delighted to support young artists.
"It s wonderful to see so many
talented students keen to pursue their
creativity through the arts," she said.

This possible use of the land was

Community Council meeting.
Senior director of housing and

Community Services Directorate,

was considering using some

Response Taskforce said it had
provided initial advice to the ACT
government, and it had been

decision is made.
