Are your children getting a bit restless now that initial thrill of the swimming pool and no school has worn off? The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection might have the answer! The museum is offering two FREE art workshops for children later this month.
“Into the Outback! Bark Painting” will happen on July 21 from 1:00-2:30pm. Children aged 6-11 years old will make their own version of an Aboriginal bark painting. The program will begin with the telling of an Aboriginal creation story and an overview of Aboriginal bark painting techniques. Participants will then make a hands-on art project to apply new skills. Space is limited to 15 children.
Then, “Into the Outback! Canvas Painting” will be held on July 28 from 1:00-2:30pm. Children aged 6-11 years old can make their own version of an Aboriginal dot painting. The program will begin with an overview of Aboriginal desert painting techniques and the variety of dot-making and conclude with a hands-on art project. Space is limited to 15 children.
Reservations are required for both workshops. To reserve a space, call 434-244-0234 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
