Arty kids top of the class in creativity

MORE than 50 proud parents and art lovers in Mundubbera turned out on Saturday for the opening of the 'Sue Lederhose and Students' exhibition at the Regional Art Gallery.

The exhibition is the culmination of a 15-week course for students Ms Lederhose hosted in her home thanks to a RADF grant.

"I used the elements and principles of art, texture, tone, colour, line and shape as a starting point,” Ms Lederhose said.

"We worked in 2D and 3D, using lots of different materials.

"I tried to follow a group's interest so different groups had different completed work.

"It has been a pleasure and a delight to mentor them and be involved in their artistic journey.

"It's thrilling to see the kids so eager and keen to come to art class all the time.”

Ms Lederhose said she is already fielding requests from parents to bring back the course next year, although under RADF conditions funding for the same activity can't be repeated in consecutive years.

Parents are currently filling out feedback forms.

The exhibition runs until October 17.

Ms Lederhose's RADF grant has covered a wide range of artistic activities in the North Burnett this year.

She worked with Mundubbera Kindergarten, Burnett State College and Monogorilby State School.

Ms Lederhose will lead an art exhibition fundraiser in Mundubbera later this year for her young Monogorilby students.
