|Our Environment: Issue 7 Autumn 1996:|
Fabulous, fishy and fantastic art works were exhibited in the Civic Offices during the recent annual Seaweek Schools Art Exhibition. The works were created by students from Christchurch primary and intermediate schools, as part of their studies into Christchurch's marine and coastal environment.
The whole of the large ground floor entrance area to the Civic Offices in Tuam Street featured the one hundred works which were carefully selected from the creations submitted by the nine participating schools.
Materials used to make up the artworks included traditional art media such as paint and paper, but some students extended their imaginations and incorporated `found objects' such as things you would normally expect to find on a beach or in the sea.
It is the first time an exhibition of this size has been held in the foyer since renovations took place in 1994. After the success of this exhibition, it is sure to be a regular venue for different exhibitions and displays in the future.
