Artistic skills revealed

THERE was an abundance of colourful artworks emanating from Bonnyrigg Heights Primary School hall last week following the launch of the school's Talented art exhibition.

Pupils from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were selected to take part in the exhibition, which ran for two days.

Art teacher Nicole Vereyken said the year 6 pupils were taken to Cecil Hills High School to create their artwork.

"This art exhibition gives the students the opportunity to express how they feel," she said.

"We teach them the skills and then the children use their own creativity to create the artwork."

School captain Natasha Cheak said she created a sculpture of a man with two faces.

"I decided to create a man whose face is half evil and the other side nice and sweet," she said.

"Every person has a nice side to them and a bad side so I wanted to show that in my sculpture.

"I love putting my inspirations into artwork."

Another pupil, Jessica So, 11, also created a sculpture of a man who looks surprised.

"It's different to everyone else's artwork because some of them are crying, others are happy so I just wanted to be different," she said.
