Art Club: Draw and explore
For members’ children aged 9–12
Taking a look at some of the elaborate ceremonial body ornaments and headdresses in the wonderful Plumes and pearlshells: art of the New Guinea highlands exhibition, we focus our attention on making a detailed drawing of these extraordinary objects in charcoal and chalk pastel.
Art Club is designed for members’ children aged 9-12 years. These monthly classes will broaden your child’s knowledge of art and develop their artistic ability. With each class focusing on a medium and technique, they will also explore the Gallery and gather inspiration for their artwork. As one of our most popular programs, the monthly sessions are now booked individually rather than as an annual series.
