ABORIGINAL artist Troy Bennell, of Bunbury, has been visiting schools in the City of Wanneroo to create art celebrating Aboriginal culture.

Bennell worked with students at Wanneroo, Madeley, Yanchep Beach, Roseworth, Alkimos and Hocking primary schools in May to develop art based on the six Nyungar seasons and local area.

The art pieces will be displayed at the City’s ‘Collecting Stories and Telling Tales’ exhibition in June and July.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the workshops were inspired by the City’s Reconciliation Action Plan and would celebrate National Reconciliation Week and Naidoc.
