Program gives kids chance to draw
CHILDREN and families can participate in a range of free drawing activities at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) and the Childers Art Space this week.
Held in conjunction with the Galley of Modern Art's major summer exhibition, Matisse: Drawing Life, Bundaberg and Childers are part of a record number of 60 regional centres participating in the Drawing Life for Kids on Tour program.
"Activities like this provide a great alternative for families looking for something that is fun, educational and constructive for their children to do during the school holidays," BRAG marketing officer Chloe Camilleri said.
All participants will be provided with colouring pencils as well as an illustrated journal featuring a series of drawing activities, encouraging children to record their observations of everyday life.
The touring art program will run at BRAG from Tuesday, January 10 to Sunday, January 15.
Families can participate at any time during opening hours, which are Monday to Friday 10am-5pm, and Saturday and Sunday 11am-3pm. Drawing Life for Kids on Tour will also take place at the Childers Arts Space on Tuesday, January 10 from 9am-4pm.
Entry for both Bundaberg and Childers programs are free and no bookings are required.
