Secondary students create artistic masterpieces

Layered Landscapes of Oz – an exhibition by the students of the Western Alliance.
From October 14th – 18th students from the Western Alliance, who range from Years 7 through to 10, came together in Longreach to attend their biannual Multischool event. The students travelled from regions across Queensland; some even ventured from Northern Territory to attend the fun-filled week. While in Longreach, students had the opportunity to work with Brisbane based artist and teacher, Mark Paddick. The workshop exposed students to aerosol art and over two sessions, students have produced a number of vibrant artworks. These works have been created through layering stencils on both Perspex and street signs, which were kindly donated by the Longreach Regional Council. The images incorporated into the students works reflect their unique slice of heaven, which they call home in our great ‘Land of Oz.’
