The Martin's Gully Public School Art Fair was a hit with the grandparents

FUN in the sun was down to a fine art at the Martin’s Gully Art Fair.

Walking among the installations, children showed their grandparents the results of their hard work for the Grandparents Day celebrations.

Deputy principal Kate McKay said the art trail involved every class at the school.

“Our Year 5 and 6 students have made all the sculptures which are outdoors, the Year 3 and 4 students have done painting and made clay animations,” she said.

“The Kindergarten to Year 2 kids have done clay modelling, painting and paper mache.

“Up in the hall we have an open section where we tried to invite the community in to join us.”

A grandparents section, community section and school student section were all on display.

“It’s absolutely fabulous, some of the comments from the grandparents were that they could not believe the creativity and the diversity of the artworks,” Ms McKay said.

“They were really impressed and I think people are really enjoying the community spirit and wandering around the school.”

Usually the school puts on an annual concert in Term Three, but this year they decided to do something different to bring the community into the school.

“What we decided to do this year was something that we could hold in our own school and this is what we came up with – this is our first inaugural Martin’s Gully Art Festival and Grandparents Day,” Ms McKay said. 

“And people seem to be really enjoying themselves.”
