Students unveil 'masterpieces'
THE visual arts are especially visible at Byron Bay Public School this week, with its Masterpieces of 2011 exhibition.
Not only will parents be able to have a look at what their little darlings have created individually in the classroom, but they'll get to view the paintings, sculptures and photographs that are the result of a class effort, helped by one or more artistic parents.
The group works - stunning in their quality and variety - will be auctioned tomorrow night, along with other works donated by local artists.
All the works are on display in the school's new library, which sits under three classrooms - fruits of the Labor Government's Building the Education Revolution scheme.
The library's completion will also be celebrated tomorrow.
"We wanted to raise the profile of visual arts, which are a feature of our school," said principal Geoff Spargo.
"I don't think there's a limit to how far we can go with this."
