A number of Territory visual and performance artists will head into schools across the region this semester to hold workshops for local students as a part of an NT-wide program.
Katherine painter Carol Randall will work with students from Katherine South Primary School on a visual arts program to transform their toilet block.
Territory print maker Tarzan Jungle Queen will conduct a screen printing workshop at Katherine High School and Corrugated Iron Youth Dance will head to MacFarlane Primary School to provide cross curricular arts and professional development opportunities for PE staff to explore dance arts curriculum.
In the remote community of Lajamanu, Alice Springs musician Darcy Davies will conduct beatboxing workshops with students, both face to face and online.
Arts, Culture and Heritage Minister Chansey Paech said the NT Government Artists in Schools program provides a range of benefits for students.
"Artists have been working in Territory schools since the early 1990s so this program is an oldie but a goodie," he said.
"Our Government knows that art matters and that creative expression provides a broad range of benefits, especially amongst our young people. That's why we continue to support Artists in Schools.
"This year's contingent of artists is set to inspire and mentor students right across the Territory and I'm looking forward to seeing the fruits of their labour."
