Young artists' masterpieces on display at Scribbles Art Studio

Creativity and colour lined the walls of the Scribbles Art Studio as its term one art exhibition took place for just one night only.

Young artists and their parents converged on Cuisine Lane to check out their masterpieces on exhibit.

Art teacher and artist Lucy Laino said the program was designed for children aged six to 14 years old.

Ms Laino said the studio fostered individuality, creativity, and self esteem.

“We use a lot of mediums, such as painting, drawing, collage, and sculpting,” she said.

“With each piece we look at artists and art movements for inspiration.”

Budding artist Sarah Moore, 11, said she loved the clases because she really likes art.

“I like doing art at school but we don’t have that many sessions,” Sarah said.

Sarah said her favorite part of the classes so far had been drawing inspiration from the Glover Prize artwork to create a landscape painting.

Ms Laino said Scribbles Art Studio was created as many parents wanted their children to have more experience with the visual arts.

“Parents value the arts and want to make sure their children have an experience above and beyond what can be offered in the early stages of arts implementation in the school system,” she said.

Ms Laino said she hoped to hold classes for disadvantaged and marginalised children in Launceston’s northern suburbs in the future.

“I’m excited about the opportunities to make arts accessible for all,” Ms Laino said.
