Art Show

RMPS Art Show

Roberts McCubbin Primary School is named after two great Australian artists, Tom Roberts and Frederick McCubbin, who painted their iconic Australian bush landscapes in the Box Hill South area. We take inspiration from and honour these artists in our school song and through two of our core school values – creativity and endeavour.

RMPS has a strong history of engaging our students in creative pursuits through our dedicated arts program. Every year for the past 25 years we have hosted an art show to celebrate the talents of our local arts community and to raise funds for the RMPS arts program. Our exhibition showcases the work of local established and emerging artists from a variety of artistic disciplines including oil, water colour, photography and mixed media.

Art Show 2021

This year’s exhibition includes fabulous artworks created by over 60 local established and emerging artists. Our guest artist is award winning Elena Kolotusha, who creates stunning photo realistic artworks of wildlife.

The opening night of the art show is on Friday 12th March from 7pm in the school hall with light refreshments and live music provided. The exhibition continues on Saturday 13th of March from 10am til 5pm. Tickets to the opening night are $25 and are on sale NOW. Due to COVID restrictions, numbers at the event are limited, so please ensure that you purchase your tickets early to guarantee your place at the opening night.
