'Youth art at Charlegrark' a success

THIS year's "Youth Art at Charlegrark" event held on March 30 has been hailed a success by organisers.

Coordinator Amanda Munn said about 800 people came to Lake Charlegrark through the day to immerse themselves in local arts.

"It was really good," she said. "We had a fantastic day."

The African drumming workshops held on the day were a real hit, with a variety of people getting up on stage and performing with the drummer after the workshops.

"They were from little people to older people," Ms Munn said. "It was very cool."

The "Paint the Lake" colour run was labelled a "huge success" with about 140 people participating.

A number of musicians also performed on stage, with dancing and street theatre popular as well as market stalls.

Guest artist Eve Barnes also did a few workshops, which were well received.

These were only some of the highlights, with the day supported by people from both sides of the border - including quite a few from Naracoorte.

"It was just an unreal day," Ms Munn reflected.

"We'd really like to thank the people who took part - the performers, exhibitors and the general public."

Ms Munn said this year's event was bigger than last, and she predicted next year's would be even bigger.

While this was a good thing, the small committee will also need to grow to take on the work required.
