Through the use of found objects, materials and symbolism, the children will examine the notion of history, nostalgia and memory, and collaborate with each other to make art.

For ages 7 – 12 years. 16pp maximum per session

  • Cost: $30, materials and refreshments included
  • Location: Manly Art Gallery & Museum, West Esplanade, Manly
  • When: Tuesday 12 July 2016, 10am – 12noon OR 2 – 4pm
