Club members at the

“Picture This” Gallery

“Picture This” is a special room at the Wollongong City Gallery set aside for children’s art.
Young children come along with their families and paint and draw to their hearts desire.
It is a very popular venue, in use most of the time.
Our Club’s donation to the Gallery was used for expendables, i.e. paper, crayons, paint, etc.
