Birrarung Marr, Federation Square
Imagine, create and play in outer ‘art’ space. On Friday 8 October children will journey to the moon and explore strange shadow shapes made by different objects. If sunlight suffices, children will also make a photographic print using found objects. The journey continues on Thursday 4 November when children will make light drawings in space using glowsticks and then create a glow-in-the dark wall painting using special phosphorescent paints. Come on both dates, or just one, and explore with artist Hayley Rivers.
