Art over Coffee: Creative Generation
  • Tuesday 06 September 2011

A special event for teachers and secondary students

Enjoy a discussion about art in a special celebration of the Creative Generation touring exhibition opening at Sunshine Coast Council’s Noosa Regional Gallery in September.

Former student and local Sunshine Coast artist Sarah Hylton and teacher Michelle Davie from Immanuel Lutheran College, Buderim, come together over morning tea to share their experience of selection, exhibition and participation in this prestigious Queensland award.

The Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art and Design recognise and promote excellence in senior visual arts education throughout Queensland schools.

Previously known as the Education Minister's Awards for Excellence in Art, this program has been conducted annually since 1990 and has helped raise community awareness about the degree of sophistication in concepts, diversity of technical competence, and the high standard of arts education in Queensland secondary schools.

Sarah Hylton was one of only two Sunshine Coast students selected to exhibit in the 2010 touring exhibition that exhibited at GOMA in 2010. Eloise Soper-Smith from Sunshine Beach State High School was also selected as a finalist for the touring exhibition. Their works along with 38 other student works will be on display at the Noosa Regional Gallery from 16 September to 30 October.

Join Sarah and Michelle over morning tea at the Noosa Regional Gallery, on Saturday 17 September 2011 from 11am to 12pm.

Phone the Noosa Regional Gallery for bookings as places are limited. For further information, contact or phone 5449 5340.
