STUDENTS at Forest Crescent Primary School in Thornlie can stand back and admire some fantastic artwork in their school.

The school had an artist in residence complete an art project after their outdoor space was enclosed to make it more of a usable space all year round.

Artist Linzi spent time with students of the school’s talented and gifted program who ranged from Years 4 to 6 .

As part of the program the students were selected to participate in an extra weekly art class to further develop their artistic skills.

The school designed a series of geometrical shapes that move through the colour spectrum from red, orange, yellow, green blue and purple.

Using techniques including stencilling, masking and spray painting and hand painting they created unique vibrant boards that are now on display in the new undercover area.
