Is there a budding artist in your home? If so, here’s an opportunity for your children to have their artwork showcased in the February Lagoons Gallery Art Exhibition and win a $50 Australian Geographic gift voucher.
All you have to do is use your imagination to create a piece of hand painted canvas art that reflects the theme, “nature”. This is a great opportunity to give your budding artist exposure to the community.
