Co-incidentally, this weeks Photography Challenge theme, Express Yourself, is also the name of a kid’s creative activity programme organised by NGV in Melbourne with fashion label Romance Was Born. Ararat Regional Art Gallery also had the activity available for a couple of weeks of the school holidays. On Sunday, the second last day, no children came in – so, loath to waste all that pretty stuff, I made a necklace for myself.
Although the programme has finished for Ararat, it continues at NGV until April 12. The necklace (or tiara) is only one of the options for kids (and kids-at-heart) to Express Themselves with. I plan to wear my necklace to the Valentine’s Day Ball at our local Hall – I can be fairly sure that no one else will have one the same!
