”Masters in the Making”

Junior artists making it big in the art world

Junior artists from around Geelong have been busy creating artistic masterpieces in preparation for Masters in the Making, a special exhibition focusing on the work of young artists aged 5 – 18 years enrolled in art schools in the Geelong region. The exhibition, open from Saturday 1st June until Monday 24th June at art@wintergarden , will be an opportunity for budding artists to showcase their talent in a professional gallery.

The artworks by talented kids will not only be on display at the real life exhibition in Geelong, they will also be uploaded to a virtual exhibition on the Bluebird Foundation’s facebook page or here, where the public will be able to view the artworks and nominate their favourite for the coveted People’s Choice award.

Masters in the Making acknowledges the importance of the inspiration and guidance provided by teachers and encourages kids to reach for the stars, with prizes being offered in seven categories, including the People’s Choice award. The kids already feel like winners.
