Bangalow children’s centre, school join forces
More than 450 works are expected to be on show next month at an exhibition called ‘Imagination’.
Children at the centre and the school are being helped by parents and local artists in developing their works.
Public school principal, Tim Edwards, said the creativity and imagination being shown by pupils was wonderful.
“It is terrific how the whole school is involved in a variety of different projects for this exhibition,” he said.
Children’s centre director, Kerry Ellbourn, said that through exploration of their environment, children were expressing their thoughts, emotions and their own unique way of understanding the world.
Kerry said children made ‘worlds’ from twigs and leaves, from blocks, mud and flowers, as well as drawing, painting, clay and other art materials.
She said teachers gave children time to develop and practice their ideas and to explore them in many different ways by offering quality materials and experiences.
‘Imagination’ will be staged at the Bangalow A & I Hall on Wednesday, June 3, from 6 pm.
Renowned artist, Peter Powditch, who has grandchildren at the children’s centre, will open the exhibition at 7 pm.
