Kids cre­ate works of art worth bid­ding for

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

BIGGEN­DEN and District Kin­der­garten young­sters have been busy cre­at­ing some fab­u­lous pieces of art for a fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive.

Their work will go on dis­play this Satur­day night at the Biggen­den Apex Rose Fes­ti­val Ball where pa­trons can bid on them by silent auc­tion.

Kin­der­garten di­rec­tor Belinda Hawes, who came up with the idea, said each of the paint­ings would be num­bered.

“Pa­trons will have the op­por­tu­nity to bid on the paint­ing of their choice,” she said.

“A bid is put into an en­ve­lope and the high­est bid­der af­ter the fi­nal show­ing on fes­ti­val day gets the paint­ing.”

Ms Hawes said the chil­dren had done a won­der­ful job.

“There are some out­stand­ing pieces, with uni­corns be­ing pop­u­lar,” she said

“The chil­dren found what they wanted to draw from the in­ter­net.

“Staff drew the out­lines on a can­vas be­fore the chil­dren used their paint­ing skills.”
