BA’s wildlife art auction a big success

1 min read

Beaufort Academy studio art students in Grades 5-12 rendered more than 100 original pieces of art, all of which were inspired by Australian wildlife for the “Valentine to Australian Wildlife” Student Art Show and Auction on Wednesday, Feb. 12.

The beautiful pieces were created by pen and ink, pastel, watercolor or acrylic painting on canvas. All student pieces were available for donation, and 15 unique items were auctioned off in a live auction that raised $910.

Lily Melville’s (BA ’22) piece “Before the Burn” raised $275, and Miles Spratling’s (BA ’22) piece “Skeetdoodle” raised $115. In total, Beaufort Academy raised a total of $1,750 with all proceeds going to the Animal Rescue Cooperative (ARC) which supports animal rescuers that are helping the Australian wildlife refuge.

Those not able to attend can still help. Anyone who would like to donate to the ARC or purchase student art can drop off their donation to the Beaufort Academy front office.
