Andersons Bay School pupils Louie Potter and Emma Tasker (both 9) admire the school's art exhibition yesterday.

The 280 school pupils spent last week working on wildlife-themed artworks for the school's first public art exhibition this week and brightly coloured butterflies, stick insects, dancing spiders and ladybirds have taken up residence in the school.

''There's a real buzz in the air. They're all very proud of themselves,'' art teacher and exhibition co-ordinator Emily Armstrong said yesterday.

Principal Hamish McDonald said the exhibition allowed the pupils to share their artistic talents with the wider community.

''It's an opportunity for parents and families to participate in the artistry of their children,'' he said.

The exhibition is open to the public and can be viewed before and after school this week.
