LITTLE "monsters" will be treated to a special tea party at the Grafton Regional Gallery this morning to celebrate the "monstrous" exhibition currently on display.

How to Make a Monster: The Art and Technology of Animatronics opens to the public today from 10am and will remain at the Grafton Regional Gallery until October 21.

A full program of monster-themed fun kicks off with the exclusive Little Monsters Tea Party at 9am. An official opening of the exhibition is set for Friday night from 5.30pm where monster man John Cox will be special guest speaker.

Five lucky Clarence Valley families have been selected from an outstanding number of participants who entered an online competition to attend the morning tea event. The Little Monsters Tea Party includes a yummy selection of fresh fruit and delicious treats, a special tour through the Grafton Regional Gallery and the chance to operate some of the animatronics in the exhibition.

Little "monsters" will also get the chance to learn about model making and creative drawing.

A spokesperson from the Grafton Regional Gallery said they were thrilled by the number of entrants and extended a thank you to The Daily Examiner for helping to promote the event.

Members of the public are welcome to come and view How to Make a Monster: The Art and Technology of Animatronics.

Admission to the exhibition costs $5 per child and $11 per adult. Family passes are also available for $20.
