Make me a Superhero: Online school holiday workshops
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until October 3, 2021
This school holiday video package includes free access to two pre-recorded video workshops for children. Register via Eventbrite to receive a link and password to both videos that will be available to watch and complete at a time that suits you throughout the September school holidays.
One workshop is aimed at a preschool and younger primary ages and the other is aimed at an older primary school age group, however both activities are able to be adapted to the skills and interest of children all ages.
Children will explore a mythical world of heroes and villains and make their very own superhero stamp out of materials you have around the home. First creating their own unique character, kids will learn basic printmaking techniques using string and cardboard to make copies of their superhero. This video also includes a short introduction to Cleverman.
- pencil and paper
- some thick cardboard
- a glue stick or sticky tape
- string, preferably thick or jute string
- PVA glue
- large spoon
- old newspaper or a covering for your table that can get a bit messy
Children will be guided to use a range of recycled materials found around your home, including toilet rolls, wrapping paper and bottle tops to create their own mini superheroes.
- Empty toilet roll
- Assorted colour paper (scrap paper, old wrapping paper, newspaper)
- Glue stick or sticky tape
- An assortment of other recycled items e.g. colourful rubber bands, bottle tops, string, wool…
Register for a ticket to receive free access to both videos. You’ll receive a link and password by email on Monday 20 September (or immediately, if you register after 20 September), as well as more detailed information on the materials you’ll need to complete the activity.
Both workshops are designed to be completed with some supervision and assistance from a parent or carer.
Both workshops are inspired by our current travelling exhibition Cleverman, a touring exhibition from ACMI. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
Cleverman is on show at Orange Regional Museum from 5 August – 23 October 2021, however we are currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
