Pupils brighten airport terminal with paintings

PASSENGERS at Phnom Penh International Airport can see an exhibition of paintings by 25 pupils of Northbridge International School Cambodia, which remains on display until January 6.

The young artists range from five to 17 years old, coming from a rainbow of nations, said elementary art school teacher Kelli Cody.

“There are also 10 quotes from students explaining what they feel about art,” she said. “The airport is a great location for parents, school staff, students and their families to see their artwork in public. I always love the reaction and pride that students feel when they are able to see their artwork displayed professionally.”

Special thanks went to Norinda Khek and Silen Yong for working to allow the art to be displayed at the international terminal, Cody said.

This was the school's first public art exhibit but would not be the last, she said. Already there are plans for touring the art show around Phnom Penh, but Northbridge school was still working on specific dates and locations around town.
