Warrnambool College hosts its annual 'Ideas Unfurled' on Thursday

Art is not just a graphic pencil and a piece of paper says Warrnambool College teacher Anthea Rafferty.

Her words came as the school’s Year 8 students attended ‘Ideas Unfurled’ on Thursday afternoon.

The hour-long event included eight rotating creative stations including food sculptures, photography, robotics, origami and drawing.

Ms Rafferty said the annual event created a platform for artistic students to participate in and a chance to promote creativity within the school.

“We want students to think creatively,” she said. “And to know that you can have a political or social message and create an artwork around that.”

The event was accompanied by live music from the school band.
