We made it for the final day of Sculptures by the Sea at Cottesloe beach today. Little did we know we had a very educated tour guide in our midst. Piper who is in year 2 has been studying the sculptures and their artists in Art Appreciation at school which she announced only as we arrived at the beach. Nice. As we passed each one she gave a little spiel, some background information and announced a few must sees. And here I thought we were exposing the kids to something new. Double nice.
Here are a few highlights.
It is always such a joyous event to see the beach thriving with people of all ages enjoying all works of art. From the interactive and funny to the colourful awe inspiring. Sculptures by the Sea is not to be missed. And here we almost did! I must pay a visit to the art teacher tomorrow and thank her. We (and the near by art appreciators) really enjoyed the artistic education through the eyes of a 7 year old.
