21st Century Kids Summer Festival On Tour in Cooktown - Kids Drawings

On Saturday 15th January as part of Kids Summer festival On Tour Artist Jorge Méndez-Blake's 'Discover Treasure Island' invited kids to listen to a CD of swashbuckling sounds and draw a picture that illustrates what they are hearing. Artist John Pule, writer and poet whose art works often combine words and images, invited kids to engage with Niunean legends and culture by responding to the artist’s word paintings. 

These are the drawings that the kids of Cooktown did.

‘21st Century Kids Summer Festival on Tour’ is a regional program of the Queensland Art Gallery, supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments, administered by Arts Queensland. ‘21st Century Kids on Tour’ is proudly supported by the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation.
