Local kids have had a ball these school holidays, enjoying the pool, and a variety of activities on Gunnedah Shire Council's program.
On Thursday, the NVI visited the pool as well as Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery for a cartooning workshop and the Wolseley Park Rotunda for an outdoor sketching workshop.
Many families were enjoying a dip in the water in the morning, and plenty showed off their skills on the diving board, or stuck to the shallows to get their fix.
Many youngsters also enjoyed the kid's area and the big bucket.
After this, kids above the age of five used their pencils and imagination to come up with some crazy characters in the cartooning workshop.
Instructor Danny Stanley helped everyone learn how to use shapes and general drawing skills to make fun cartoons, and they then used those skills to make a short comic.
Danny then headed over to the rotunda to show some other youth the art of sketching the natural environment.
Kids above the age of nine used various media on paper to study the forms and details of tree-trunks, leaves and other objects of the natural world.
