The first art exhibition was held in the School hall in December of 2011 and was a great success. Since then The Murri School holds an annual student art exhibition “Modern Ochres” during the end of year Speech Day.

Artworks are produced as part of students’ studies in the “Visual Arts” subject, and vary in subject matter depending on the year of study. Art themes may range from abstract self portraits to Indigenous symbolism.

Several artworks from various years exhibitions are used on this website to promote the Murri School students’ artwork and the Australian Indigenous Art in general.
