WORKS of art created by TAFE NSW students in Bathurst will be on display at a special exhibition from Thursday.
Folio Insight will feature works from students currently studying a Certificate IV in Design or a Certificate III in Design Fundamentals.
Relieving head teacher of Creative and Design, Ruth Stone, said the exhibition would not only give students a chance to show their art to the public, but would also give them a confidence boost.
"It really helps people develop not just their artistic skills, but helps them build a vision for their future," she said.

Among the students who will have their work displayed are Brock 'Beemeezy' Mason, Natasha Bellamy and Jared Gunning.
Mr Mason started his course at TAFE this year, using it as a way to enhance his natural artist talents.
"I've always been creative, it's kind of all natural to me, but this is a more professional side of creativity," he said.
"You still get to have fun with it and sometimes do your own thing."
He has explored a range of mediums, but it is drawing where he excels.
Although not his first exhibition, he looks forward to having his pieces on display in the TAFE exhibition.
Ms Bellamy is also not a stranger to exhibitions, having had her work on display previously when she was part of a group called Artshed.
Among the work she will be displaying (pictured) are self-portrait and a unique photograph.
"I was experimenting with shutter speed - never done that before, but when I started this course, it gave me a lot of stuff to experiment with in the future, which was awesome," Ms Bellamy said.
"I've never had these creative opportunities in Sydney."
For Mr Gunning, this will be his first exhibition.
People can expect to see "a bit of everything" when it comes to his work, but he is particularly fond of creating collages.
The Folio Insight exhibition will be officially opened at 6pm on Thursday at Bathurst TAFE's student hub building, I Block.
Following the opening, people can visit the exhibition from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday between December 6 and 13.
