FROM acrylic on canvas to mixed media construction - Naracoorte High School students explore a wide range of art techniques in the classroom.
Their creative works are currently being exhibited at Naracoorte Art Gallery after an official opening last on September 4.
Over 100 students, parents, teachers, friends and community members packed out the gallery to view pieces from about 80 students in Years 8 to 11.
The event only happens every two years and this is its fourth year.
For the first time ever, 11 students from the Independent Learning Centre are also exhibiting pieces created in class under the guidance of local artist Kay Hole.
Naracoorte High School art teacher Vanita Hutchinson said all work on display was created as part of the arts curriculum.
"It is a brilliant opportunity for the students to be proud of what they have done," she said.
"It changes their perception taking it out of the cluttered classroom and into a professional gallery.
"The kids can see how they can develop, especially the junior years can see that that's where they're heading and it's something to aspire to."
Nibbles on the night were provided by Naracoorte High School hospitality students and Independent Learning Centre commercial cookery students.
All of the invites and posters were created by the Naracoorte High School Year 11 IPP class.
The exhibition will continue until the end of the month.
In November the Year 12 art students will exhibit their works in the gallery.
Naracoorte High School's next big event is Battle of the Bands in a few weeks' time.
