Drawing Life for Kids on Tour - QAG GoMA - 14, 15, 16 January 2012

Cooktown kids are amazing!  Many joined Drawing Life for Kids on Tour and used their creativity to draw with family and friends. Our President Lea's 'Imagination in Everyday Life' Drawing Party was a huge success and the climax to the three day free school holiday art activity put together by the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane and generously paid for by the Fairfax Family Foundation and Santos.

"In stretching their imagination the kids didn't let us down. They couldn't wait to present their unusual creations to the others and everyone enjoyed lots of laughs with a party on the porch of the gallery at the end of a really fun morning," said Tracey Cass, organiser of the event.  These free school holiday events are proving really popular with kids and parents of Cooktown and we look forward to offering more in the future. Volunteers from the gallery happily set-up and supervise because the packages are so organised and the kids have such a good time, it's a pleasure to have them in the gallery enjoying themselves so much.

With drawing templates, an art journal to keep and other art materials provided by QAG - GoMA most generously sponsored by the Fairfax Family Foundation and Santos the Cooktown Kids had an wonderful three day art experience over the school holidays at the Elizabeth Guzsely Gallery with many Cooktown locals and members of the Cooktown School of Art Society!  Photo by Tracey Cass
