Wacky Word Designs: Children’s Summer Season Programme

The Centre for Art Education presents the Children’s Summer Season Programme designed for children between the ages of 9 and 12. Bring your little one to the Wacky Word Designs  workshop to explore the art of mixed media collage.

Inspired by Jody Paulson’s artwork titled  Here to Stay in the All Things Being Equal… exhibition, children will create an overlapping and layered word composition using a variety of different drawing and collage techniques. Children will be asked to think about important people, places, experiences and interests in their own lives which will form the basis of the words that they choose for their mixed media collage.

Led by experienced teachers, children will be inspired by the space and encouraged to explore a range of drawing and collage techniques. Other workshops in this season will encourage children to 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.
