Ju­nior Pi­ca­sos get creative

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.
