Cre­ative chil­dren

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

RE­TURN­ING again to the North Bur­nett this hol­i­day pe­riod are the pop­u­lar, free Mu­sic on the Wall work-shops for chil­dren.

Although the Gayn­dah work­shops, which start to­day, are fully booked, kids from Gayn­dah can at­tend Mun­dub­bera, Biggen­den or Eidsvold if they wish, as there are still va­can­cies.

“Dur­ing the work­shops the kids will be paint­ing their own cal­ico bag, do­ing can­vas paint­ings, and de­sign­ing their own car­toon T-shirts (a paint­ing and a craft each day),” co­p­re­sen­ter Amie Gil­holme said.

“We are look­ing for­ward to see­ing the in­spi­ra­tional work the kids pro­duce. As the work­shops are RADF-funded, there is no cost to at­tend.”

Mu­sic on the Wall paint­ing work­shops were pro­vided to more than 120 young peo­ple aged six to 18 in the Bur­nett re­gion at ses­sions in 2011 and 2012.

More than 240 can­vases were com­pleted and an adult work­shop was al- so re­quested and run.

This year, to make things more in­ter­est­ing, the work­shops are tak­ing on a new name with two ac­tiv­i­ties be­ing com­pleted each day; one a paint­ing on can­vas task (with a dif­fer­ence) and the other a fab­ric cre­ation (a car­toon T-shirt and a painted cal­ico carry bag).

Book­ings are re­quired due to lim­ited places. Chil­dren be­tween the ages of six and 15 who love mu­sic and like to be cre­ative are wel­come to at­tend.

Biggen­den work­shops are be­ing held on Mon­day and Tues­day, Jan­uary 14 and 15.

Work­shops in Mun­dub­bera this year will be held in St Mary’s Church hall in Stu­art-Rus­sell St next Thurs­day and Fri­day, Jan­uary 17 and 18.

The fi­nal work­shop will be held in Eidsvold on Jan­uary 19.

Both pre­sen­ters hold cur­rent work­ing with chil­dren Blue Cards.
