AN art exhibition showcasing pieces from local artists and school children will be held at Good News Lutheran School this weekend.

The Good Art Exhibition was designed to harness community creativity, having both student and professional artworks under the one roof.

Good News Lutheran School acting principal Heidi Hansen said there would be more than 300 student drawings and more than 100 local professional artworks for the community to view.

"The Good Art Exhibition is a great opportunity for students to showcase their creativity through art. Research supports that showcasing artwork has a significant effect on many social and well being indicators,” Mrs Hansen said.

"Through the visual arts at Good News Lutheran School, students are encouraged to grow in both self-awareness and aesthetic appreciation. They are challenged to acquire technical and manual skills, and be creative and effective communicators."

Student Fern Shepherd is just one of the many students who will proudly display her work.

"Recently Good News Lutheran school student, Fern Shepherd, received a highly commended award for her artwork in the Awards for Excellence in Art Design 2016,” Mrs Hansen said.

"The theme was In The Garden. Ferns artwork will be on display at the exhibition. Fern is a Year 4 student with a creative talent that is encouraged and nurtured at Good News.”

Fern said she loves to create different pieces.

"When I start to draw and colour I get lost in the drawing, colouring, feeling of what I'm doing and time passes so quickly,” she said.

Professional artists Lorelle Boyce, Gaye Cook, Sandy Flett, Michael Foley, Christine Groh, Anastasiya Occhi, Jane Lanniello, Sergio Lanniello and Julie-Anne Parfitt are partnering with Good News Lutheran School to exhibit and sell their artwork during the exhibition.

The Good Art Exhibition is a free event. General viewing will commence Friday, October 21 from 3-5pm. The grand opening, which will be held from 6-9pm that same night be an an adults only event, as the school will be serving wine and cheese. The exhibition will re-open to the public, to both adults and children, on Saturday, October 22 from 9am-1pm.

The Good Art Exhibition is being held at Good News Lutheran School, 49 Horizon Drive, Middle Park.
