Calling out to East Gippsland Creative Kids!

Do you like making and creating? Would you like to brighten someone else’s day?

Because you can, by sending a meaningful message to someone who has to stay home just like you.

East Gippsland Art Gallery is inviting children to participate in our fun and exciting Snail Mail Project.

You write a letter and make a small handmade gift to send to someone who lives far away and they send a letter back to you.

We know you are all creative kids but if you need an idea, start by introducing yourself and what activities you like doing.

Here’s a few handmade ideas to help you get started:

You could

  • Draw a picture of yourself, your house, your pets

  • Include your favourite recipe with a photo or drawing of the dish

  • Write a list of the things you do to cheer yourself up

  • Or list your 5 favourite songs or movies

  • Make a collage of picture cut out from old magazines

  • Create an origami animal to send

  • Make and decorate a bookmark

  • Design a card


Then pop it into an envelope.

​Parent’s, this is where you come in. Click HERE to read our full Terms and Conditions and register.

The Gallery is temporarily closed to stop the spread of Covid-19. As a result our exhibition program has been postponed and will be rescheduled in the future.

Gallery staff are working remotely and you can call and leave a message or email. Please stay tuned, sign up for Gallery updates and follow us on social media
