April School Holiday Programs
Kids Workshop: Mintventures - People, Place, Portraits

Stories about where we are from and what’s important can be told in many different ways.

In this special kids’ program, you’ll discover the different ways people connect to place in the Canberra/Kamberri, Place & People exhibition.
Explore how these stories can be told in something as grand as a sculpture or as small as a coin.
Then create your own story through print making and water colour painting in the CMAG Art Studio.

This program is aimed at children 6 – 12 years old. All children must be accompanied by an adult and bookings are essential.
