Calling all Art students… are you bored with summer yet? Looking for something artistic to do?

Mrs Schilling has a fun project just for you. For the past two days, Visual Arts students and alumni have been working to beautify the Farmers Market shed at Hall Park. These photos show the project in progress. “It’s looking great but is not done yet. I will be there tomorrow at 8:00am with students to continue work on the project. Come down to help out. I would love to see you there.” said Mrs Schilling.
