$146 for a group up to 15 students

Colour Play (ages 4-8)

What sound does red make? What does blue smell like? How does purple move? Students explore their world through colour in this multi-sensory, experimental studio workshop. Students use their five senses to explore colour in the Gallery spaces through search games and movement activities. Back in the studio, students create abstract paintings inspired by different types of music.

My Place (ages 9+)

Landscape art becomes more than just physical space in this fun studio project! Students explore the idea of ‘place’ and their own place in the world through storytelling, Gallery explorations and a mixed-media sculpture project. Students investigate the basic elements of landscape art including foreground, mid-ground and background and visit Gallery spaces to discover how artists tell stories about ‘places’ in their artwork. In the studio, students work with a variety of materials to build their own 3-dimensional relief sculpture based on a place that is important to them.
