Art Star: A nine-year old with a passion for art created three of the 40 artworks that have been on display at the brand new Parkes Hospital. Jesse Woods of Parkes Public School is the youngest artist to display her work to help brighten up the hospital and make it a more vibrant and friendly place for everyone. The three works of Jesse, who has been taking art lessons at The Little Art Company since she was 7, are called Something Fishy, Dandelions and Masai People. Jesse had an opportunity to tour the art works recently accompanied by Christine McMillian, Arts Out West and Health Coordinator. Well done Jesse!
