Should chil­dren’s art classes con­tinue at Mun­dub­bera?

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

NOT only are art classes a fun way to con­nect with other peo­ple, but they can teach chil­dren cre­ativ­ity, con­fi­dence and prob­lem solv­ing skills.

Mun­dub­bera’s Sue Leder­hose wants to en­sure chil­dren in her town con­tinue reap the ben­e­fits of hav­ing art in their lives and she needs the com­mu­nity’s help to mea­sure in­ter­est in pro­posed art classes for 2019.

“I am cur­rently ap­ply­ing for RADF fund­ing so that chil­dren’s art classes in Mun­dub­bera can be con­tin­ued this year at a min­i­mum cost to par­ents,” she said.

“At this time what I’m try­ing to do is just de­ter­mine the num­ber of chil­dren who would be in­ter­ested in art classes in Mun­dub­bera.”

Ms Leder­hose hopes to hold age ap­pro­pri­ate art and craft classes with three sep­a­rate age groups – Prep to Year 3, Year 3 to 6, and high school.

“Part of the fund­ing is to find out how much in­ter­est in the lo­cal com­mu­nity there is in pur­su­ing your child’s cre­ative abil­ity,” she said.

“I need to know whether there could be two classes, or three classes.”

Par­ents of chil­dren in­ter­ested in art classes can let Sue know via her Face­book page Sue Leder­hose- Aus­tralian Artist or by email­ing her at leder­[email protected]
