The ‘Sunday School’ of the Armenian Apostolic Church of Holy Resurrection had organised a Children’s Art Exhibition on the theme of Easter. The exhibition was under the auspices of His Grace Bishop Haigazoun Najarian, Primate of the Diocese of the Armenian Church of Australia and New Zealand.
Primary school aged children were invited to take part in the exhibition by submitting artwork depicting the Easter themes of Palm Sunday, Glorious Resurrection and Ascension. Students in Years 1-6 took part in this exhibition by submitting creative artwork. A selection of this artwork was put on display in the Edgarian Hall of the Armenian Apostolic Church in the week of ‘New Sunday’ and the Annunciation to the Virgin Mary.
The public exhibition commenced with an opening ceremony on Saturday 6th April. Before the opening of the curtain to unveil the wonderful display of art, His Grace spoke warmly about the children and what they had produced. He was keen to talk to them and discover their thoughts and reasoning as to how, what and why they had produced their wonderful pieces of artwork in the way they had.
After having the opportunity to walk around and observe all the drawings, His Grace handed certificates of participation to all the children, including a bag of ‘goodies’. The exhibition was on display until the following day. During this period visitors were given the opportunity to vote for their favourite piece of art.
We are pleased to announce that two of our students, Narek Topouzian and Krikor Demirjian of Year 5 had their art work selected for a special presentation by His Grace the following week. Well done to all the students, who were thrilled to have their pieces of art on display and are looking forward to the next one!
