Art loving youngsters get state government support


A boost for kids and the arts was announced in Ballarat yesterday.

The Art Gallery of Ballarat is one of 80 organisations to receive state government cash to support their education program.
The gallery will receive $100,000 to deliver a visual arts program designed to develop improved knowledge of practical skills in a range of areas across the F-10 visual art curriculum.
"This funding will mean that more students across Ballarat and the region will be able to participate in programs that will enable them to be more creative," Wendouree MP Juliana Addison said.
