Kids create art

PIECES of fabric, colourful cardboard, glitter and glue were flying around as busy hands assembled their master pieces in a class at the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery yesterday.

Surrounded by stimulating pieces meant getting inspired was easy for the next generation of fine artists.

Stella Corlett made a fish from fabric and said she was inspired by a painting that was hung in the gallery.

“My favourite part was finding all the different pieces to use,” she said.

As if pre-empting there would be a fish out of water Harry White made a fish bowl.

“I wanted to do something different to everyone else,” he said.

Laura Spooner made a dragon and said she liked to paint and draw in her spare time.

The class involved making a still life composition and was a kids’ holiday activity run by educational officer Sue McEntyre.
