Ever since our youngest child turned 6 she has been begging me to let her go to one of the art classes at the gallery on Front Street. Given that is birthday month, and school holidays, we wrapped it all up in a bundle and sent the three of them off to create masterpieces.

Leigh Gordon was in charge of the troops and I’m glad that we had booked as the classes are in high demand during the school holiday period. There were 8 budding artists in the class which lasted 90 minutes. We left them with blank canvases and they came home with fish and coral and turtles.

My troop want to go again this weekend! If you are on a holiday with children, sometimes you need to have a day out of the sun – the Kids Art Classes are perfect for an indoors day. Besides, how many Queensland resorts can offer art classes for children with professional artists?
