ART creations that were exhibited in the NSW Art Gallery are on display at the Albury Library Museum.
Children from around NSW spent the last year creating 700 art works as part of Operation Art, designed to brighten up children’s hospital wards around the state.
Khancoban Public School year 6 student Hannah McCallum is among the young artists whose works were selected among the 52 being shown in Albury.
Her picture is of an old gum tree, kangaroo and farmhouse.
Heather said she was inspired to design the picture because of the beauty of the high country “where it is so quiet and free.”
Operation Art co-ordinator Lisa Vandendolder said the art helped the recovery of sick children.
“It takes their minds off the treatment and makes them more positive,” she said.
“They are full of colour and life and patients can leap into a world of imagination.”
Lavington East Public School children were impressed by the paintings yesterday and hoped they could participate in the program.
Year 2 student Uttam Sapkota said if he had the chance he would paint pictures of trees.
“Trees cheer me up so I would want that for others,” he said.
Madison Disley, seven, was eager to help people by painting.
