Banknote Art Concept continues to inspire the artistic community with its latest exhibition, the “Art is our Currency Educational Program”, presented at The Protectorate Museum at Note Printing Australia. This impressive showcase highlights the creative achievements of students from Newport Lakes primary school in Victoria – Australia, merging the intricate world of currency design with youthful imagination.

Education and Art: A Powerful Combination

This innovative educational project, conceived by Carlos Almenar, founder of Banknote Art Concept, renowned banknote designer and contemporary artist, demonstrates the organisation’s dedication to integrating art and currency. The “Art is our Currency Educational Program” was made possible through the generous support of Note Printing Australia who provided the gallery space, and CCL Secure who supplied authentic polymer banknote substrate and creative kits.

Support for Young Talents

Carlos Almenar and Banknote Art Concept’s art curator Yohann Naviere conducted extracurricular workshops at Newport Lakes Primary School, introducing students to the intricacies of the currency’s artistic value and its cultural significance. The educational program inspired students to embark on a creative journey, envisioning and creating their own currency that reflects diverse interpretations of society and heritage.

A Showcase of Imagination and Skill

The resulting exhibition at The Protectorate Museum displays the students’ impressive work, each piece demonstrates a talent for colour selection, design elements, and overall composition. The precision, patience, and technique shown by these young artists is truly commendable, as they have successfully incorporated complex ideas into their designs.

The “Art is our Currency” exhibition serves as a testament to the power of education and creativity in nurturing young minds. By providing a platform for students to express their unique perspectives, Banknote Art Concept has enabled them to contribute to the broader conversation about cultural representation in currency from the artistic perspective in a banknote polymer substrate proof.

As visitors explore the exhibition, they are reminded of the importance of supporting and nurturing young artistic talents. The works on display not only showcase the students’ creativity but also serve as a beacon for the future of Art Fiduciaire and Money Art. Initiatives like this play a crucial role in ensuring that the artistic legacy of currency design is preserved and celebrated.
