🎨ART CHALLENGE: today we have the second challenge for our online art club with fabulous artist Katie Gracie.


Remember there are NO RULES! Use whatever materials you like - pencil, crayons, felts, collage, paint, computers, stuff from the garden, dress up, photos…let your imagination run wild.

Once your work is finished, take a photo and share it in the comments section (along with your first name, how old you are, and what school you go to). Get an adult or whānau member to help you with this - and remind them that uploading photos mean you are giving REAP and Katie permission to reuse the photos.

It’s a chance for you to show the world how creative you are by making amazing art.
Remember, once you’re finished, upload it to the comments section. Keep creating, stay safe and keep cool!
