The Cowra Regional Art Gallery held a children's holiday sculpture workshop on Wednesday April 13, with guest artist Nic Mason.
The workshop saw the children making a model of an Australian animal out of modelling clay.
Ms Mason said the opportunity to teach the children was fantastic.
"It's great to teach the kids skills in sculpture, when I was a child I was fortunate to go to pottery classes."
"We focused on native animals in this workshop, the children have all made an echidna and then they've had the opportunity to sculpt another animal of their choice," she said.
It wasn't just fun with clay, Ms Mason said the children also got the opportunity to see her exhibition and do their own research to come up with an animal they would like to make.
"At the start of the workshop we went and had a look at my exhibition and in that exhibition there's a number of threatened native species, we also looked at reference materials and some toy animals."
"It's very difficult looking at a picture to sculpt something but if you have 3D in front of you it can help, we talked about different things the children saw in the exhibition and ideas and meanings in their sculpting," she said.
Ms Mason exhibition WILD is currently being held at the gallery and will be there until April 24.
