The Alcoa School Education Program provides thousands of school children with the chance to learn about sculpture making with practising artists.

This year, 340 students from schools local to Alcoa�s operations at Kwinana, Pinjarra, Waroona, Dwellingup and Yarloop took part in the workshops as guests of the company.

Alcoa of Australia managing director Alan Cransberg said the workshops gave students a chance to experience aluminium as a creative medium, learning from international artists.

�Many participating students come from country communities, meaning they might not typically attend such a unique and popular city based event,� he said.
