Family Fun Day Art Exhibition
A new event at this year’s Family Fun Day.
OUR VISION: To showcase the creative talents of students
in our school.

Each child will create an individual piece of art work (in class) to be displayed on Family Fun Day. This
exhibition will replace the quilt show as one of our major attractions. A variety of mediums will be used
from traditional canvas to sculpture.
Every child’s art work will be displayed.
Entry to view the exhibition will be via a gold coin donation.
Students will be given displayed art works to take home on the next school day.
A donation to the P&C of $5 per child to cover the cost of materials would be appreciated.

To encourage students with a flair for the arts there will be an open section for those students wishing to
exhibit work created in their own time. These can be individual or collaborative works.
This section is open to any medium. All art works to be submitted by Tuesday 9th June, 2009.
Entry fee $5 per piece will apply. Prizes will be awarded in three age groups. 4-6yrs, 7-9 yrs, 10yrs +
Please list type of art to be exhibited to help with display organisation.




Payment to be left with class teacher. Clearly marked. Cheques made payable to NWPS P&C.
