School holiday art-making fun at BRAG

BRAG school holiday
The scene is set for lots of school holiday fun at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery.

Enjoy some art-making fun these school holidays with activities and workshops on offer at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery.

Children and families can take part in a range of hands-on activities developed by contemporary Australian artist Natalya Hughes in The Castle of Tarragindi on Tour, which is on display in the ImaginArts space until 5 May.

During the autumn school holidays, the Galleries will also host special Castle of Tarragindi On Tour workshops, led by the Galleries' Public Programming Assistant.

Workshop participants will explore Natalya’s artistic practice and create interpretive works based on the activity space.

Developed in collaboration with the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), The Castle of Tarragindi on Tour activity space features a striking blue and white palette inspired by a grotesque castle interior by French designer, architect, and engraver Jean Bérain.

As part of the program, visitors can create their own digital hybrid creature, decorate and assemble a 3D object, make elaborate patterns using printed paper, and take part in self-portrait drawing activities.

The activity materials include imagery of things that are important to the artist, such as Australian flora and fauna found close to her home in the Brisbane suburb of Tarragindi.

Visitors to the activity can also enjoy an introductory video in which Natalya shares her thoughts on the inspiration and concepts behind The Castle of Tarragindi.

The self-guided activities are free to all visitors during regular Gallery opening hours, 9:30 am to 5 pm daily.

The Castle of Tarragindi on Tour is a free QAGOMA Touring program available to regional Queensland communities.
