Ships in the Harbour: Children’s Summer Season Programme
This Summer, bring your little ones to the museum to enjoy fun-filled workshops designed for children. Our ‘Ships in the Harbour’ children’s workshop will teach them how to paint, mix colour and paint with a brush.
This workshop has been tailored to children of different age groups. This ‘Look at me, Looking at you’ workshop caters to children aged 6 – 8 and 9 – 12.
10 – 11:30 a.m. – Ages 6 – 8
12 – 2 p.m. – Ages 9 – 12
Led by experienced teachers, children will be inspired by the space and encouraged to explore a range of mixed media techniques and 3-D construction. They will also explore the creative possibilities of paper, plastic, fabric, and recycled materials in a creative, nurturing, and child-friendly environment, where they will learn about the museum, the artworks on exhibition, and the history of the Silo District.
