ART IN ME – Opening Celebration

Join us as we celebrate 70 artworks from 7 Schools from the Seven Valleys.

CAPERTEE PUBLIC SCHOOL – CULLEN BULLEN PUBLIC SCHOOL – GLEN ALICE PUBLIC SCHOOL – HAMPTON PUBLIC SCHOOL – PORTLAND CENTRAL SCHOOL – WALLERAWANG PUBLIC SCHOOL – ZIG ZAG PUBLIC SCHOOL
In our second year of The Art In Me Program, Schools were once again invited to participate with over 70 artworks produced by the children through a number of workshops and in addition each school has created a group artwork which will become part of a community polyptych artwork for the exhibition? This community artwork has been created using charcoal, sticks and leaves remaining from the bushfires.
For this years theme “Me”, students were encouraged to explore the theme by creating an artwork that expresses who they are and how they feel about themselves. This may be in the form of a self-portrait, a place they connect with, objects that are important to them, a word orientated artwork, an abstract work or any other way they would like to express their identity.
The Gallery provided facilitated art workshops at the participating schools and under the instructions of Elaine Butler
The project includes a facilitated Art Space at Gang Gang Gallery for primary school students from the local Lithgow LGA, a catalogue of the children’s work, an exhibition of artwork by primary school students in the main gallery.
This activity is supported by Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network (NBMPHN), as part of the Australian Government’s response to the 2019-20 bushfires. Wentworth Healthcare is the provider of NBMPHN
