WARRNAMBOOL Art Gallery is getting ready for its action-packed family fun day on Sunday.
The annual event gives families the opportunity to spend a fun afternoon together and get creative using recycled art materials.
Organisers said they were hopeful of topping last year’s turnout, as judges had received about 1000 entries for the annual postcard competition.
Judges said they had attached an environmental, outdoor theme to the competition for the first time and were amazed at the quality of the designs.
“One winner is just not enough and so in some instances we are going for two winners,” Warrnambool Art Gallery education officer Delise Oldfield said.
“They are all fantastic. There are just too many great designs.”
Drawings include children doing outdoor activities with their families, ranging from walking a dog to overseas holidays.
“They’re moments that you remember as a kid and they are the simple things such as riding bikes, flying kites, fishing and just doing things with the family,” Ms Oldfield said.
“It’s nice to evoke memories of being outdoors.”
Children can also get creative with many art activities through using recycled art materials, such as making snowdomes.
“It’s brilliant to get kids, parents and teachers familiar with creating art out of old and unused materials,” Ms Oldfield said.
“It can be quite a challenge and you really see kids come up with some incredible ideas.”
There will also be a fire brigade exhibition, a sausage sizzle, stalls, a second-hand book sale, afternoon tea and games, including egg-and-spoon and sack races.
The event will run from noon to 4pm on Sunday, with judges announcing the winners of the postcard competition at 1.30pm.
