Children's Picture Diaries 23 to 26 March 2009 was a busy week at Hope Vale with all classes from the Hope Vale State School involved at the IKTC. These sessions included; self portraits – who we are, landscapes – where we live and making prints of what we like to do.
The children enjoyed the week and they were very focused on what they were doing, well done to all the children. It is so wonderful to hear our children say and know that their artwork is in the State Library and hopefully one day they will travel to Brisbane and see their artwork.
Huge thanks to Principal Leanne Rayner, teachers, teachers aids and especially the students. We were also privileged to have our Art & Culture staff to assist us, a wonderful experience of witnessing community artists work with students, thanks to Evelyn McGreen, Dorothy Rosendale, Wanda Gibson, Grace Rosendale and Roberta Bowen.
Mayor Greg McLean also came into the IKTC to encourage and support the students and he states that he would like to see some of the artwork to be on t-shirts, tea-towels and other memorabilia; we will certainly look into that.
