Discovery Space: History of you
Weekdays 9–20 January 2017
Two sessions daily:
10–11.30am and 11.30am – 1pm
Inspired by the exhibition A History of the World in 100 Objects, think about yourself in the world and make your own time capsule with a small soap carving, identity badge and a photo of you on the day.
Bring along: a small, special object (less than A4 size) to sketch. Objects tell a lot about ourselves and the times in which we live and drawing objects can help us understand the world around us.
You’ll learn some cool techniques on how to draw your object with artist and educator Naomi Zouwer.
All ages, children must be accompanied by an adult
Cost: $10 child, children on Friends full membership free
Your Discovery Space ticket also entitles children to half-price exhibition entry ($4) and two accompanying adults per child entry at the concession rate ($15). Show your Discovery Space ticket at the Information Desk to gain this discount on the day.
