City gallery hosts art at­trac­tion for youth

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SCHOOL HOLIDAY GUIDE -

UD­DING artists can use Farsi let­ter­ing to cre­ate a mas­ter­piece and help il­lus­trate a cook­book at the city’s gallery th­ese hol­i­days.

The ac­tiv­i­ties are part of the Kids’ APT7 on Tour, a hol­i­day pro­gram of artist projects and ac­tiv­i­ties devel­oped by the Queens­land Art Gallery/ Gallery of Mod­ern Art’s Chil­dren’s Art Cen­tre.

Gold Coast City Gallery pub­lic pro­grams co-or­di­na­tor Jodi Fer­rari said kids could ex­pe­ri­ence the di­verse con­tem­po­rary styles of artists from across the Asia Pa­cific re­gion.

“They can make a street-style mask, help to il­lus­trate a cook­book, cre­ate a comic strip and par­tic­i­pate in some cool mul­ti­me­dia art­works,’’ she said.

Chil­dren can work with Paras­tou Forouhar, who uses the script of Farsi, the lan­guage of Iran, to cre­ate beau­ti­ful pat­terns and de­signs.

Kingscliff lo­cal Zoe Thom­son will men­tor chil­dren in a spe­cial car­toon work­shop as part of the APT7 on Tour pro­gram.

The work­shop will fo­cus on the ac­tiv­ity book Hahan and friends, cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Chil­dren’s Art Cen­tre and In­done­sian artist, Hahan.

Kids can col­lab­o­rate with the artist dur­ing a Hahan-in­spired mask-mak­ing ac­tiv­ity.

Chil­dren can also col­lab­o­rate with Malaysian artist Ise by il­lus­trat­ing the recipe for their favourite meal.

They take home an il­lus­trated recipe from Ise to share with their fam­ily.

The free drop-in ac­tiv­i­ties run from Jan­uary 14 to 19, from 11am to 1pm daily at The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast, Gallery 1.
