The small outback town of Mitchell (in outback Queensland) is a vibrant arts community with its school age children eager participants. The official opening of ArtRageous -- held this afternoon at the Maranoa Gallery -- displays the artwork of students attending Mitchell State School.
The school's art teacher, Karen Wolski, has a passion for art and teaching, which she shares with the children in her care. Consequently, colour and creativity shine from paintings and drawings hung tastefully on the walls of the gallery.
An enthusiastic crowd of teachers, parents and interested people from the community attended the opening, clapping and congratulating individual students. Entertainment was provided by the school's marimba band, and afternoon tea was served.
How wonderful it is to see young people passionate about art, proudly sharing their work with the community. Well done, Mitchell State School!
