December 8 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until December 23, 2018
Visit Newcastle Art Gallery every Saturday and Sunday morning for art and craft activities in the gallery. 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 they ask that you arrive no later than 12:15pm to ensure there is enough time to complete your masterpiece.
