Pupils at Rapaura School have spent the past 10 weeks working on six works of art, which will go up for auction alongside the work of some first-class artists tomorrow.
The auction is the school's biannual fundraiser that is organised by a committee of parents, the Friends of Rapaura.
Working with the kids on the pieces for the past 10 weeks is specialist art teacher, Kate Vavasour.
Mrs Vavasour said the theme for them this year was "The Wonderful World of Colour".
"Alex Fulton, an interior designer, came to talk to the children about how she uses colour in her work.
"(We did) a lot of research and thinking about how it was going to work, and how we were going to get 30 kids on one piece of art work . . . we want to represent each child," she said.
Every child in each class had to produce a piece of work, to contribute to the art work that would represent their class at the auction.
Mrs Vavasour said she worked on different ideas with each classroom to suit their age and ability.
The children's works can be viewed in the catalogue on the school website, as well as the 47 other art pieces going up for auction.
They include works by Sheyne Tuffery, Nicholas Dillon, Fran Maguire, Rose McKellar, Peter Wells and John Parker and range from paintings, sculptures and photography to jewellery and fashion items.
"There's something for everyone this year," Mrs Vavasour said.
Funds from the auction, which would be held at Marlborough Vintners Hotel, would be going towards ICT and eLearning facilities for the school.
Tickets can be purchased at Harcourts Marlborough or the school office.
