Albert Collins, Artist and Actor

 Albert Collins (1883-1956) was an Australian painter who worked in watercolor.

He taught at Redlands School in Cremorne, where his design course was popular.

He was also a radio actor, known for playing the character of "Joe" of the Children's Session in the long-running serial "The Wide-awake Bunyip," which later was called the "Muddle-Headed Wombat."

Another great Australian painter, Jeff Smart, also appeared on the Argonauts TV show which Albert Collins was on. Jeff wasnt an actor but had a regular segment about art for the kids.
