Mr. Barker’s CMT 11 Exhibit at Keshen Goodman Library

Currently on display at the Keshen Goodman Library are a number of printed digital artworks belonging to Mr Barker’s Communications Technology 11 Class. The show opened on Tuesday 3rd May resulting in enthusiastic reviews from students, parents, teachers, library staff and members of the general public.

As you make your way around the exhibition, you will see an inspiring range of photographic and Photoshop composite work produced by students over the past few months.

Should you visit you may see a number of people standing around wearing strange looking glasses with red and blue lenses – don’t worry – the glasses are needed to view the students’ 3D Anaglyph projects that are also on display. The 3D glasses are available upon request at the library information desk. The CMT 11 exhibition will continue through the month of May.
