The exhibition features the works of pupils from Years 2 to 12, representing the four schools in Radford City.

These talented young artists present work created in the classroom where they have diligently learned a variety of artistic movements, styles and mediums.

Some students also submitted work created outside of the classroom, allowing their creativity and talent to shine through.

Works by McHarg and Belle Heth premiered under the direction of Michelle Saunders and Ashley Syphrett; Dalton Intermediate, under the direction of Kristy Bryant; and Radford High School, under Savannah Leeman.
