THE wet start to the school holidays didn't stop Hayley and Lauren Kluver making the most of their day.

Grandmother Jo Aldous took the young girls to the Rockhampton Art Gallery to get creative in the kids corner with a new art activity that will be running throughout the school holidays.

"It's a great opportunity for the kids, especially considering the weather," Ms Aldous said.

"They love art, so it's been a good way to spend the morning."

The activity allows the children to create collages, inspired by the vibrant and imaginative landscapes of Gold Award artist Kate Shaw.

The art activity will run from 10am-4pm daily.

Unfortunately, the wet weather has resulted in the cancellation of the school holiday activities at the Heritage Village, but these will recommence once the weather improves.
