Students work outside Limonata restaurant on Duke St, with two teachers Stephanie Harrigan and Susan Armstrong who both have a strong interest and talent in this area.

There were 30 students involved from Years 3-6.

Planned activities supported work currently covered by the syllabus and provided a wonderful opportunity to extend and enrich the students' opportunities to express themselves artistically.

It also provided a fantastic addition to the already vibrant music program that incorporates both band and choir.

The children were involved in painting, drawing and abstract art which incorporated the use of recycled materials. A photography workshop was led on Thursday by another talented teacher, Michelle McDonagh.

The students were taught the principles in this area, using the beautiful township of Grafton and river as the backdrop.

Both workshops were followed by a small exhibition at the Limonata restaurant which was open to the public.
