Art Tools – School Holiday Workshop

By No Comments

This workshop combines painting, drawing and sculpture in a creative exploration of materials and processes. Young artists will enjoy a tour of Visions of Country—investigating different types of mark-making—and then get creative in our workshop space making their own brushes and tools using found materials. The tools will then be put to use in a series of mark-making experiments using paint, ink, paper and card.

Please note that there are two sessions for the workshop:
9am – 12pm (suitable for ages 7-10)
1 – 4pm (suitable for ages 11+)
