KAOS at Gallery 107 on Friday
KAOS hosted its annual art exhibition at Gallery 107 on Friday night, with both professional artists and art from Dalby Daycare Centre and Stuart Street Kindy students on display.
Dalby Daycare Centre Director Thushari Lammas said the event was a resounding success.
"This year we had 122 guests attend the Opening Night,” she said.
"We raised a generous amount of profit from the multi-draw raffle, live and secret auctions, entry ticket sales, drink sales as well as commission from professional artist sales.
"Money raised from the night will assist both Dalby Daycare Centre and Stuart Street Kindy and will be wisely spent on children's resources as well as other required items.”
Mrs Lammas also noted the positive role art can play in a young child's life.
"Art encourages many areas of learning and development - while children are engaged in art not only do they discover different mediums they can use to create the masterpieces, but they also use their imagination and develop their motor skills.
"Lastly art can also be a relaxation activity to relieve stress, all while allowing children to explore and experiment through the mixing of colours and much more.
Mrs Lammas took time to thank the people that made the event possible.
"Firstly I would like to thank the KAOS Community, which is a group of parents who tirelessly donated their time to get the event under way,” she said.
"Our children for their amazing creative abilities, as well as both teams of educators from Dalby Daycare Centre and Stuart Street Kindy.
"Lastly I would like to thank our invited professional artists and all the guests who attended the Opening Night and supported our community based Daycare Centre and Kindergarten.
