Stu­dents show­ing their colours

Canning Gazette - - NEWS -

BUD­DING young artists have been ex­hibit­ing their works at a lo­cal shop­ping cen­tre.

Lo­cal stu­dents have show­cased their art­works at River­ton Shop­ping Cen­tre for the third year as part of its Youth Art Awards.

Stock­land River­ton cen­tre man­ager Phil Martin said the awards were a great op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to show the com­mu­nity their cre­ativ­ity, pas­sion and skills.

“The teach­ers, stu­dents and our cus­tomers love to see what the kids come up with,” Mr Martin said.

“It re­ally is im­pres­sive what they can do.”

Stu­dents were given the theme of Colour the Rain­bow to guide their works.

Eight schools and com­mu­nity groups par­tic­i­pated this year, with each re­ceiv­ing a $200 Stock­land gift card for their school and an­other $200 worth of art sup­plies. The en­tries will be dis­played in the cen­tre un­til Sun­day.

The cen­tre has also been run­ning school hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties un­der the theme, with face paint­ing, slime mak­ing, scratch art and more, from 11am to 2pm, un­til Satur­day.
