It has been a big week of fun for all at the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery as children, teenagers and families explored their artistic potential at its second annual Art Camp.

Eight workshops were held over four days as part of the Summer Holiday Program, with activities ranging from jewellery making and animation to collage and digital self-portraiture.

GETTING CREATIVE: Under the guidance of Art Gallery staff, Little Bling workshop students create their own fun and playful jewellery to wear, using upcycled materials.

Participants were also able to take home their creations from some of the sessions.

The workshops also put the spotlight on some of the stunning exhibitions currently on show, such as Little Bling, which was inspired jewellery maker Blanche Tilden’s Ripple Effect: a 25 year survey and Inky Insects, which looked at the photographic portraits Ink in the Lines.

The school holidays are the perfect time to drop into the Art Gallery and see these exhibitions, some of which will be closing later this month.
