PRETEND PLAY & SERIOUS FUN @ HOME
Below are our FREE activities for all Community Heroes to enjoy some pretend play and serious fun at home.
We're taking our Community Hero's on a journey into the world of art and creativity as they curate their very own art exhibition and host its opening.
To kick StART Interaxcity’s Art Gallery week, we’ll show you how to transform your home into a renowned art gallery, with supplies you already have! Get ready to “draw” a crowd (virtual of course!) to the grand opening with your little Community Hero's paintings, drawings and sculptures. First up, to get you stARTted, we’re helping you design your exhibition invitations and the plaques to showcase your work!
Calling all little Picasso's, Gogh's, Banksy's & Monet's...
Now that your invitations are ready, it's time to start finding and/or creating pieces of art to display in your art exhibition. Little Community Hero's might have a favourite picture or painting already. We will also be sharing with you some fun artwork ideas which you may wish to create for your exhibition.
2. All Art Galleries have special plaques (signs) under each piece of artwork to tell visitors information about each artwork. Click the image on the left to access our FREE art exhibition plaque template and get ready to make your own plaques for your pieces of artwork.
As our Curate your own Art Gallery @home activities "draw" to an end, we're teamed up with the very talented Sandwich Bag Dad to show our Community Heroes a simple and fun way to draw one of our favourite cartoon characters - Bluey! Grab your pencils and paper. Click the image below and enjoy creating your very own Bluey cartoon. Don't forget to add your creation to the grand opening of your Art exhibition and please email us so we can see your amazing Bluey cartoon and exhibition artworks.
