AAA 2020

Posted on 16 Nov 2020

Alfred Deakin High School is proud to encourage and support young aspiring artists through our annual school's art extravaganza, AAA.

The annual event is an invitation and an opportunity for the school community of ADHS to come together in the celebration of the artistic talents of our students.  Due to COVID, this year, the visual artworks of Alfred Deakin's talented students will be presented through a virtual art exhibition on a website thanks to year 10 student Edeline Ohk.

Combining the skills of our CAD (Computer-Aided Design) students Lance Krumpholz and Lewis Perry, and the students from our classes: Unicorn Visual Arts, Painting and Drawing, and Ceramics and Drawing, we have assembled a truly unique and unforgettable art exhibit that ADHS has never done for the school community to enjoy. Additionally, within the site, we have added in information for the Unicorn Permorming Arts performance tonight and content from the 9/10 Music class.

This is a AAA that we have never seen before! View the spectacular Arts event in the following link:
