Wandong’s Three Brushes Studio earlier this month hosted its second art exhibition, showing off more than 140 works from its 120 students across all ages.

This year’s exhibition saw the introduction of two new categories: a people’s choice award, which allowed the public to vote on their favourite pieces; and an all-abilities category, which allowed a wider range of students to have their art on display.

Three Brushes owner and teacher Sharon Delaney said she was proud to be able to see the growth of her students and the studio over the past year.

“I’m just really proud of what the kids have done, with the amount of work in comparison to last year and the growth that they’ve shown,” she said.

“There’s so much difference in the quality of work. They’ve just grown and challenged themselves and it shows in their artwork.”

The studio has grown over the past year to include students of all ages and abilities, with this year’s exhibition also receiving support from Kilmore Art Society and Officeworks, as well as judges from the community.

“Most of these kids won’t be our lead athletes, they won’t be the best footy players or the fastest on the field but with art they can show that they’re good at something, and it’s something great that will last forever,” Ms Delaney said.

The studio is working on introducing new activities including mosaics, paper quilling, string art, as well as new challenges like 3D drawing and life drawing.

Ms Delaney said she hoped a wider variety of art styles would be on display for the next exhibition.

“It’s all about giving more for them to challenge themselves with in the way of artwork and show that it’s not just about painting,” she said.

“Hopefully it’s bigger next year and there’s more art, maybe we’ll even have to hire a bigger hall.”
