This event brings together local primary schools to celebrate art and showcase young talent.

There is a variety of the pieces exhibited from ‘The Beast – a lonely flower’ to ‘Into the Unknown’ and ‘Emerald’; ‘Wild Explosion’ to ‘Rainbow Feathers’ and ‘Snowman at Night’.

The young artists and their families gathered for a special 'opening ceremony' on February 1 and the exhibition continued for the following few days, where family, friends and the school communities were able to view the artwork on show.

Deneal Smith, Head Master at Warwick School said: “It is fantastic to host this amazing event in Warwick Hall. There was so much energy at the opening ceremony and we welcomed a huge gathering of eager, local young art students as well as family and friends.

"This exhibition has grown tremendously over the last few years and the eclectic selection of art submitted, using various mediums was as broad as ever. The talent of these young artists, their creativity and imagination is exceptional and hopefully this passion will benefit them throughout their life beyond school.

"Warwick School is proud to support the Arts in our community, and provide a showcase for students across the region.”
