LITTLE artists at Mareeba State Primary School (MSS) proudly displayed their drawings, paintings and sculptures at their Art Show last week, with a glowing new edition to the annual event. 

The theme “artistic diversity” saw unique mediums of art being displayed in their school library, with the biggest hit being the “glow cave”.

 Art Coordinator, Barb Robinson said the event was a big hit for the students, their parents and the school community.

“The theme is artistic diversity and every piece of art is different from prep to grade six, with different types of paintings, drawings, sculptures and clay work,” she said.

“I think the glow cave was the biggest hit with the kids because they’ve never seen it before and it's exciting for them to see their art glowing and their shirts light up under the UV. 

“We are hoping it's a draw card for parents who love their children doing art and it's a great community thing for the school.”

Throughout class time, students were able to visit the library and congratulate their peers on their talents and their parents were able to visit outside school with them.
