Kids canvas-ing for funds


Queenstown three-year-olds (from left) Joel Paterson, Abby Fookes and Thornton Reid plus Ava McIntyre, 4, get creative on canvas for an annual fundraiser. 

Two hundred mini-artists at Queenstown Preschool and Nursery – ranging in age from three months to five – have been designing art to be sold off this weekend. 

Last year’s auction netted the childcare centre $3000. 

Work by the wee ones will be on display at the Cloakroom Gallery, at the corner of Stanley and Ballarat streets, on Saturday from 10am-4pm and Sunday at 10am-3pm.
