THE Kids’ Art Bash is off to a flying start over the school holidays.

The arts program is run by Anglesea Art House and kicked off on January 2, running all the way through until January 24, and the Kids’ Art Bash is already a hit.

Anglesea Art House president Jennifer O’Sullivan said numbers were up and she felt that was because many people were remaining local over the holidays.

“It’s been a very good start … we would have had nearly 100 kids each day and they’re loving it, you can see it on their smiling faces,” Ms O’Sullivan said.

“I think we’re seeing more people, I think because people are doing things regionally, I think we’re definitely seeing an increase.

“It’s been local, a lot along the Surf Coast.

“But there’s also a lot of people that normally come down … we’ve had people from Ballarat, Warrnambool, Bendigo, we’ve had some regulars come down.

“It services all the needs, it’s great for us because we’re fundraising … and it gives people another option over the summer.”

The Art Bash is all about kids accessing their creative side after a year largely spent indoors.

A range of creative stations are available, all from just $5.

The Art Bash will open at 10am and run through to 4pm. The event is run by Anglesea Art House volunteers with more than 60 members participating.

Bookings can be made online and will be prioritised, but Ms O’Sullivan said everyone was welcome to come along, as the event maintains COVIDSafe protocols. For further information visit the website, www.angleseaarthouse.com.au
