Art sessions introduce littlies to gallery environment

GIVING children the opportunity to be creative is a high priority at the Gympie Regional Gallery and talking about art gives children a greater understanding of the creative process and problem solving.

There are a number of creative opportunities for children including Artplay, Art Stars and Holiday Fun program where children are taken through the exhibitions on view then introduced to an activity that uses themes or techniques in the artworks on show.

For little ones, Artplay sessions run every last Friday of the month (except school holidays) and the next session is Friday, October 28 from 10-11am.

These small group sessions are a lovely way to introduce children aged between 18 months to three years to the gallery environment and sharing a creative activity with a small cost of $4 or $2 if you are a Friend of the Gallery member. Please book into these younger sessions.

Then the next session of Art Stars will be on Saturday, November 5 with guest artist Peter Rowe joining the children.

There are two sessions on the day; 10am-noon for children aged five to nine years and 1-3pm for young people aged 10 and up. No bookings are necessary, simply turn up. Cost is a mere $2 to cover materials.

Gympie Regional Gallery is situated at 39 Nash St.

Inquiries 5481 0733.
