About the Work

Ephemera Aquarium was a free visual arts project open to all Townsville primary schools, delivered by Townsville City Galleries in collaboration with local artists Cassie Roberts and Lisa Ashcroft. With the knowledge and guidance of our experienced local artists, students learned tactile sculpting techniques and created bright miniature sculptures of reef creatures using paper clay.

See what marine life you can spot on The Strand in this fun, ephemeral schools project!
