Newcastle Art Gallery want to let you know that they want your kids to come over. Far from a prissy friend who scoffs when your children enter the room. They are welcome into the Newcastle Art Gallery any time next year and particularly during these school holidays. Book in for your workshop here. All children from the ages of 5 to 12 are invited to come along and workshops are Free - $12.
FREE ART CART WORKSHOPS
Every Saturday & Sunday
10:30am to 12:30pm - 30 mins long
Art Cart engages children with the exhibitions on display through discussion and art making. Led by Gallery educators, every weekend Art Cart engages with a different work of art on display, and the event is staged in the Gallery space as close as possible to the original work.
Art Cart grounds the child’s experience of the Gallery with tactile, hands-on experiences. Parents are encouraged to collaborate with their younger children and encourage their older children to extend the art activity with some new element of their own design. Activities can be simplified or made more complex depending on the child. Each activity takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, and we ask that you arrive no later than 12:15pm to ensure there is enough time to complete your masterpiece.
