The first ever St Teresa’s Art Festival (Start) was launched on 8 September.
The event had a great turnout and festival organiser, Catherine Ohlson de Fine said the school wanted to hold a fundraiser and because they were positioned next to the Keyes Art Mile, art was the way to go.
“We decided to work on bridging the gender gap and focus on women in art and offer spaces for lesser known creators and unheard voices,” she said.
De Fine added that young art collectors looking for affordable art, prints, illustrations, and ceramics had Start as the perfect platform.

In addition, students looking to pursue a career in art and families wanting to cultivate an appreciation for art with their children were at the right place.
“We hope this will merely be the beginning of a festival which year by year grows, and becomes more inclusive and fertile for students, families, budding collectors and aspiring artists to cultivate their interest in art and watch it grow.”
