Cobargo Preschool has enjoyed a year of art and creativity, culminating in its fourth annual art exhibition.

Joy and Abandon opened at the Black Wattle Gallery in Cobargo last Friday and closes on Saturday, September 8. 

“The exhibition celebrates the children’s work and creativity, their joy in life and artistic expression and the freedom and abandon in which they share their ideas,” Cobargo Preschool teacher Christine McKnight said. 

“The children at Cobargo Preschool have enjoyed the support and learning from community members to explore different materials and approaches to art.” 

Jodie James taught the children the skills of felting while Carole Broadhead introduced the children to the basics of basketry.  

The children walked from preschool to the Black Wattle Gallery on Wednesday to see their exhibition and to officially open the display.

The gallery is at 60 Princes Hwy, Cobargo.
