Why it pays to be Arty Farty…

In the coming issue of I AM Magazine we will be featuring two creative works from two separate Schools in the Sutherland Shire.

The first; a written piece by Year 11 De La Salle College student, Sebastian, a creative take on the Burke and Wills saga – aptly titled ‘Perpetual Presence’. Sebastian’s writing was selected by his teacher, Gaby, and we believe he will have a novel out in no time at all.

Accompanying Sebastian’s work will be an art piece by one of the ‘Gifted and Talented Arts Program’ students from Gymea Bay Public School.

Choosing which piece to select for publishing however, has been a difficult task. They are all just amazing. Students from year 4 through to Year 6 attend the program that is unique to the School. The program aims to encourage students who show interest and skill in painting and arts.

In the coming issue we will explain why it is paramount to encourage creativity in children and why, even the less arty-farty of folk, should be exercising the creative part of their brain on a regular basis.

Let the selection process begin…
