Gallery's holiday fun times

CHILDREN from under-fives to 15-year-olds have been showing off their talents and having fun being creative at the school holiday art workshop program at the Gympie Regional Gallery.

Last week, tutor Millie Hine brought in some old tyres and tiny cars the children used to paint to make prints.

They were inspired by Ian Smith's large colourful paintings of trucks and road signs in his exhibition On and Off the Road on view at the Gympie Times Exhibition Space until August 11.

Graham Cross and Lyn Dundas showed children how to make watercolour paintings inspired by the exhibition Purely Watercolour which showcases the beautiful watercolour work by 10 local artists.

Children watched in delight as some of the artists from the exhibition demonstrated their techniques during the morning.

For future programs, visit gympie.qld.gov.au and subscribe to the gallery news letter or phone 5481 0733 to get one sent in the mail or follow the gallery on Facebook.

Gympie Regional Gallery, at 39 Nash St, Gympie, is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am-4pm.
