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, sculpture and mixed media.

The art show will be held on Friday 17 th and Saturday 18 th of March 2023 in the RMPS school hall. The School Fair will also be running on Saturday 18 th March so put the date in your diary for a great family day out! [link to Fair page coming soon]
