Each year Top Arts exhibits outstanding works by students who have completed Art and Studio Arts as part of their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). Reverting to its better-known title, Top Arts (formerly StArtUp: Top Arts), this year’s publication once again demonstrates the outstanding creative abilities of Victorian students.
The selected students are profiled by artist Minna Gilligan. Gilligan reveals the ideas and diverse range of media used by each student. Also in this volume is an informative essay by Ingrid Wood, this year’s Top Arts curator, which details the creative process behind students’ final works.
Top Arts 2017 is an exciting publication that provides exposure to Victoria’s next generation of artists and supports art education and encourages continuing creativity.
