There was an abundance of talent on display last Friday at the opening of the Children and Youth Exhibition.
Scone Arts and Crafts presented the exhibition after conducting a weekend workshop with 29 young artists in May.
A significant amount of artwork was produced over this weekend and can be now seen in the Scone Arts and Crafts hall.
Organiser and honourable secretary of Scone Arts and Crafts, Scott Douglas Cooper said the weekend was run by members of the group who provided tutoring to the up and coming artists.
“It is about bridging the generations with younger and older people as both having a lot to contribute,” he said.
“I like getting young people enthused about art and art culture.
“It was magic having the place filled with kids”.
The weekend is aimed at primary school aged children in the Upper Hunter and it clearly has inspired them to get into their art.
Matthew Pinkerton in year 4 at St Mary’s Scone said his favourite type of work was ink painting.
“I’m not so much into sport like the other boys in my class; I like to do art in my spare time at home”.
Matthew produced an array of colourful work around the theme of nature.
Another St Mary’s student at the opening was Breanna Cox.
The year 5 student said her favourite medium to use was oil pastels.
