Junior Picasos get creative
AN OUTDOOR venue was chosen for the morning tea marking the opening of Mundubbera Kindergarten’s exhibition so the children could play before proudly showing off their artworks to parents and friends.
Kindy staff members were impressed by the amount of time the children, aged from three to five years, spent on their paintings.
“Even the boys this year spent up to 20 minutes at a time on their paintings,” director Benita Littleton said.
“They’d go to another activ- ity for a while and then come back and add to their work.”
The kindy exhibition is on display in Gallery 2 while a new exhibition has also been hung in Gallery 1.
The Flying Arts exhibition is a collection of works from entries in the 2012 Queensland Regional Art Awards.
It showcases the creative spirit and talents of artists living and working in regional and remote Queensland.
Of particular interest to visitors to the museum is a sculpture created using cane toad skins.
