Wagga Wagga Art Gallery – Winter Art Camp 11 – 14 July, 2023

Published: 04 Jul 2023 2:59pm

Warm up these school holidays with the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery’s Winter Art Camp, a series of art making workshops for kids being held during the second week of July school holidays.

Themes of the Winter Art Camp relate to the Gallery’s year of environmental programming - GREEN 2023, where sustainability, recycling and eco-friendly techniques are explored.

Workshops include printmaking, animation, weaving, jewellery-making, paper sculpture and using upcycled materials.

Wagga Wagga Art Gallery Director Dr Lee-Anne Hall, said “this is a great opportunity for participants to get creative in a sustainable way and start the conversation around the environment.

“There are so many great workshops to look out for. I can’t wait to see what comes of workshops such as Emily Shannon’s ‘Birdlife Monoprint’ and Trish Harrisons’ ‘Trash Toy Mash Up’, and the use of upcycled materials."

Eight different workshops will be offered throughout the week including offerings for primary school aged children in the mornings, and workshops for teens in the afternoons.

Students will also have the opportunity to tour the gallery’s exhibitions and learn from some of the region’s most creative contemporary artists and art educators.

The Wagga Wagga Art Gallery’s Winter Art Camp will be held between Tuesday 11 and Friday 14 July 2023.

Workshops for primary school aged children (6 – 11 years) will be held at 10:00am – 11:30am, and workshops for high school children (12 – 16 years) at 2:00pm – 4:00pm.
