The Modern Australia exhibition features paintings and sculptures that are bold and colourful. Inspired by these art works children will design and create their own shaped based sculpture. These sculptures may be inspired by an animal, a plant or a favourite character.
To make these sculptures children will learn about a range of construction and decoration techniques. At the end of the workshop we will have a small exhibition of our colourful sculptures
Children will then make a shape and colour based collage and a small sculpture using card and creative construction techniques.

Our current Modern Australia exhibition displays many ways to draw and paint people, from colourful and surreal to detailed and realistic. After viewing these paintings, we will move to the Gallery studio to draw our own pop-style self- portraits.
