TACKING Point Public School student Annie Randall is quite the art enthusiast.
Her artwork has been submitted into Operation Art by Tacking Point Public School and is now on display at the Armory Gallery Sydney Olympic Park.
Every year schools across New South Wales are invited to participate in Operation Art, an initiative of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in association with the New South Wales Department of Education.
The Operation Art program provides a forum for schools and students to demonstrate their visual arts achievements through exhibitions at the Armory Gallery, Sydney Olympic Park and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
Annie and her family attended the opening ceremony in Sydney over the weekend of September 9, to view her artwork amongst 796 other apieces from children in kindergarten to year 10 from all over NSW.
Her artwork "Praying Mantis" was been chosen as a Paw Pick and Touring 50.
Paw Pick means her entry was an example of Operation Art used to illustrate a wide variety of teaching strategies. Touring 50 is one of fifty artworks exclusively chosen to be exhibited at the Art Gallery of NSW and selected regional galleries.
After the tour the artwork's become part of The Children's Hospital at Westmead's permanent collection.
“We are super proud of our daughter's achievement and thought it would be nice to share it with the community,” he mum, Yvonne, said.
