The young artists experimented with techniques involving design, colour, volume and depth, and were extremely proud as their ideas came to life on the canvas. “My painting is about the underwater, with many sea creatures and seaweed,” student Akshay Sivaprasad told News Of The Area. “I like drawing and painting, it was fun to make and worth the effort.” Parents and community members gathered to admire each of the masterpieces and were impressed with the artistic flair shown by the budding Renoirs and Van Goghs. Community member, Maureen Matheson, said the evening was a showcase of young, local talent. “It was great to view the work done by the students and see all their efforts and hard work pay off,” she said. At the end of the evening, parents were able to purchase the artworks which will now take pride and place in their homes for many years to come.
