At APC we value the arts highly. We believe creativity plays an important part in learning to understand oneself, in engaging others in dialogue for thinking, change or progress and in the promotion of ideas. As well as our annual Art Show, APC hosts VCE and IB Diploma Programme exhibitions each year, all of which offer our senior students the opportunity to exhibit their works. Internal displays across the College’s three campuses celebrate student work as it evolves over time, providing a showcase for sketchbooks, visual diaries, and design drawings which illustrate the critical and creative thinking which underpins the development of the pieces. The diverse nature of the ideas and themes students engage with across their studies, is a reminder of the importance of the arts in shaping young people, giving them voice and a means of expression that might otherwise be missing.
