Make a Butterfly Flutter-by – School Holiday Workshop
April 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm$20.00
Design and build a rubber-band powered butterfly—that flies! Children will learn how to identify local pollinating butterfly species by their distinctive colours and patterns and then use them as inspiration for their designs.
Discover the power of pollinators this school holidays with a series of art-making and environmental education workshops presented by Orange Regional Gallery and Orange Regional Museum.
Each session will include a visit to the Pollinators exhibition at Orange Regional Museum followed by a hands-on activity in the West Room, Orange Regional Gallery. Children will learn about the crucial role that pollinators play in sustaining biodiversity and human health while getting to know some of our local plants and pollinating animals. There will also be time to admire the giant ‘swarm’ of artworks created by hundreds of local school children.
Pollinators is on show at Orange Regional Museum from 20 March – 9 May 2021. Entry is FREE.
