One talented Flinders Park Primary School student will have their artwork displayed on the Yagan Square digital tower in Perth’s CBD through a competition run by the WA Local Government Association.

The annual #shoWcAse IN PIXELS competition invites local councils to submit artworks across several categories, which are then displayed on a circular screen on the 45m high digital tower in Yagan Square.

The competition is run by WALGA as part of its annual local government convention.

Eight students from Flinders Park Primary School have entered pieces in the competition, with the City of Albany responsible for choosing the winner next week.

As Flinders Park is the only entrant in the primary school category, one of the students will have their work shown in the heart of Perth.

School art specialist Sarah McNamara helped the students create their pieces which had to include the name of their local government and be based around this year’s theme Embracing Change.

She said she encouraged the students to use textural elements in their artworks because they would show up well on the digital banners.

“Some of the designs are made in clay and done in a sculpted form, which will look really cool,” Ms McNamara said.

“And some are collage, and then they’ve been scratch-painted, which is where you paint over crayon, and then scratch designs into it.”
