Kiama Art Society’s annual Little Archies attracted approximately 200 entries from students of the five primary schools in the district.
Deputy Mayor Kathy Rice opened the well attended three day event at the Kiama Leagues Club, organised by the Society’s Catherine O’Leary, who takes its children’s classes.
The budding artists, from Kinder to Year 6, were thrilled to see their portraits hanging on the walls.
“It is a great way to encourage an appreciation of Australia’s major art prize at an early age, and help light the spark of a lifetime passion,” says Kiama Art Society President Judy White.
Entry forms are now available online for the Society’s major exhibition at http://www.kiamaartsociety.org and will be available soon from Framed By Us and the Little Blowhole Art Bar.
Details: Entries close Friday 20 July. Exhibition 25 August to 2 September, Kiama Leagues Club
