Year 12 Perspectives Program


The Art Gallery of WA is proudly supported by Healthway promoting Act-Belong-Commit message. For the 25th anniversary of Year 12 Perspectives, we have created a video, designed to inspire your students.

Part 1 shows footage from this year’s opening night celebration including interviews from some of the exhibiting students. Part 2 is a visual analysis workshop with AGWA Educator Lisa Young. Join Lisa as she analyses two State Art Collection works using the STICI framework.

Use the video as an in-class learning tool to help develop your students’ visual arts language. Or bring your group to the gallery for a first-hand experience. To book or for more information, click here.


Many thanks for your wonderful sessions with our Yr 11 & 12 students on Wednesday. They had a wonderful day and it is always a pleasure to visit AGWA. See you next year…

year 12 Perspectives 2016

28 January – 2 April 2017

Year 12 Perspectives is your yearly taste of art by some of the best, brightest and most talented graduating high school artists in the State. An annual barometer of what our youth are thinking and feeling, it is also a rich celebration of the role the arts play in the development of individual identities.

In 2017, the Year 12 Perspectives exhibition will celebrate its 25th year and the show will also highlight alumni who have become professional practitioners in the visual arts, including video interviews with previous finalists across the years.
