ALBURY students have turned routine infrastructure into colourful artwork on Olive and David Streets.

Thirty-two children at Albury Public School created various designs that now cover two National Broadband Network boxes near the school grounds.

Visual arts teacher Penny Power said the students chose their own themes for the scratch carve artworks, with many animals among the final 32 pictures.

“It had to be a simple image and one that they could add their own effects into if they wish,” she said. “They had to consider what not to scratch and bring that into the picture as well.”

The box wraps are among 21 being rolled out by Albury Council.
