ABOUT 140 high school art students will showcase their artistic talents this month.
Kingaroy State High School students will debut their unique art works at the Kingaroy Art Gallery.
At the exhibition opening tonight, art lovers can soak up a range of classroom art works from different media, including digital layering, printmaking, pop art, mixed media, ceramics, etching, painting and drawing.
Art co-ordinator Wendy Corstiaans said the students would benefit greatly from the experience.
"It is rewarding for the students to see their works displayed in a professional environment," she said.
"We visit other local and Brisbane exhibitions when we can, so to see their own works hung and exhibited is very satisfying."
One of the artists, Tara Montgomery, said her painting, Rio De Janeiro, was inspired by her travels through Brazil.
"The painting is a personal reflection of my experience," she said.
"I'm stoked to have our art works on display because it gives people an opportunity to see our hard work and dedication."
Not only will this be a great experience for students, but for parents and the community as well.
"It will be great for the parents to see their child's work," Mrs Corstiaans said.
"Often the work has been completed at school and the parents are frequently pleasantly surprised to see the works and standard their child has achieved.
"Teenagers often get 'bad press' regarding their behaviour, yet when you visit our exhibition you will see and be overwhelmed by their positive attitudes and outlooks."
Doors open at 7pm and admission is a gold coin donation.
After Nanango MP Deb Frecklington officially opens the night at 7.45pm, students will present artist talks.
Savouries, punch, tea and coffee will also be served throughout the evening, and Captain Paddock's wine will be available for purchase.
