Children get creative during Bank Art Museum Moree's July 2019 school holiday art workshops

Moree children had the opportunity to explore their creativity earlier this week during Bank Art Museum Moree's school holiday workshops.

Just under 20 children, aged six to 12, took part in each workshop, held on Monday, July 8 and Wednesday, July 10.

Each day had a different theme and involved various art-making activities relating to that theme.

On Monday, the theme was Alexander Calder, based on the sculptor who was best known for his invention of the mobile and his wire sculptures.


"There was loads of creativity with organic shapes, trapeze artists and some very cool sculptures," BAMM education officer Anna Jackman said.

Wednesday's theme was Impression Sunrise by Claude Monet, which is currently being exhibited in the National Gallery of Australia.

"We did our own impressions of Impression Sunrise, a painting relay (painting Impression Sunrise again), a complementary colour hunt and finished by making our own masterpiece," Mrs Jackman said.
