Event Details

Make, create, explore and play creatively with your child at the MINI MOONAH MAKERS 5 week art program for children in the early years accompanied by a parent or carer. Each week Art Educator Josie Chapman will guide you through creative activities to help your child’s development with colour, shape, pattern, sensory experiences, fine motor skills and a love of art making. Children will get the chance to experience a range of materials, from the conventional to the unexpected as they explore mark making, construction, printmaking, painting, natural dying, clay, and all sorts of things that get the busy minds and little hands making. Parents will also be given ideas on how to continue the art making at home including tips to contain the mess and make activities simple to set up.
