Crustworthy 2019

Thanks to the generous community spirit of Crust Pizza (Mount Lawley, Western Australia), ‘Crustworthy’ 2019 was awe-inspiring and a brilliant opportunity for students of Mt Lawley Senior High School’s Arts programs to get creative with some pizza dough art!

As a prelude to this year’s Lawley Art Auction, five of the local artists involved were on hand to judge the resulting pizza dough artwork after six students got busy in the kitchen of Crust Gourmet Pizza earlier that day. From hearts and swans to mandalas and a deep sea inspired piece of hanging art, the students relished the opportunity to stretch their creative minds with the promise of a pizza party as top prize.

Artists Jillian & Peter Ciemitis, Karla Freitag, Peter Campagna and Greg Ash were on hand to inspire students in attendance and were impressed with the level of mastery wielded by students when given the opportunity to flourish. “The divergent thinking evident tonight in these creations from the students of Mt Lawley is a testament to the possibilities for the future of the arts” said Peter Ciemitis.

The creations also received rave reviews from fellow students in attendance, as well as the parent volunteers behind the Lawley Art Auction. Chowing down on delicious pizza, all guests also enjoyed beautiful music from talented year 11 MLSHS Music students Eli Metcalf and Rosie Dagless.


Julian Fisher

It is with much sadness that we heard of the passing of artist Julian Fisher. Julian was a great supporter of the Lawley Art Auction, having submitted works since 2006. Julian submitted his last work just a few weeks before his passing. We are very grateful to his wife Batya who so thoughtfully delivered the work to us because “he was such a great supporter of the event”.

Thank you Julian and Batya.

RIP Julian.

Love the skin you’re in – it’s a work of art

When it comes to your skin, it is important to choose a fully-accredited medical clinic. Assure Cosmetic Centre differs from a beautician or day spa in that we are owned and operated by a team of Perth Specialist Plastic Surgeons. Treatments on your skin can provide aesthetic, functional, self-esteem or quality-of-life improvements. Why not look after your own work of art – yourself.


What’s all the Drama About?

It all began in Australia when Helen O’Grady, a trained drama teacher and actress, hired a hall in Perth and commenced after-school drama classes for children. Her aim was simple, yet a unique one – to promote personal development through drama. Through the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy programme, teachers are able to help thousands and thousands of young people find their voice, generate self-belief, and become generous participants in life and to experience much fun and fulfilment along the way.
