ACCA & Arts Learning Festival: Family Art Day

Sun 7 May 2017

This is a past program.

Think like an artist at any age with two artist-led workshops designed to explore creative thinking. Family Art Day is an exciting and adventurous day out with the opportunity to think and make at ACCA with practicing artists Jeremy Eaton and Rudi Williams.

Aimed at kids and their families, two different workshop options will begin the hour at 12pm, 1pm and 2pm: plaster flower casting with Jeremy Eaton and photographic collage with Rudi Williams. Participants can rotate through the workshops across these times, with the option to stay for part or all of the three hours. All participants can take their flower sculptures and photographic collages home with them!
