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.
