MAG&M Kid's Art Adventures – Creative Workshops
Children 5 - 11 years are invited to join the fun through imaginative and creative play!
Learn a variety of art making practices through hands-on activities and create your own artworks while being inspired by the exhibitions at Manly Art Gallery & Museum.
Laura Jones: The Garden
Thursday 14 January, 10am – 12noon
Inspired by Laura’s paintings, sketch then paint onto a long piece of card using mixed media, the scene of a table strewn with seed pods and native flowers. The artwork becomes an exploration of nature as seen through the eyes of a bee or a bird. It is then transformed into a concertina artist book to take home.
Nicholas Harding: The Theatre Sketchbooks
Thursday 21 January, 10am – 12noon
Choose a favourite theatre character from among Nicholas’ sketches, then draw yourself as this character. Along the way, learn how to make tonal drawings in both charcoal and ink using a variety of papers.
Thursday 28 January, 10am – 12noon
Learn how to make your own stencil and print the design onto fabric, using environmentally friendly fabric paint. Print onto the calico bags provided and/or bring a white t-shirt, ready to wear and take home.
