Logan Art Gallery will host creative art activities for children this month and Logan City Council libraries will join the fun next month.
APT9 Kids on Tour creative arts workshops will run at the gallery from January 19 to 25 from 10am to 3pm each day.
APT9 Kids on Tour explores the preciousness of life and natural resources, and the importance of community and storytelling through hands-on and multimedia activities.
There is no need to book for the workshops. Just go to the gallery on the corner of Wembley Road and Jacaranda Avenue, Logan Central.
The activities for children and families have been created by artists exhibiting at the 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art – currently on display at the Queensland Art Gallery’s Gallery of Modern Art.
Cr Steve Swenson said the APT9 Kids on Tour free interactive program was being presented between January and April in more than 100 regional and remote venues throughout Queensland and Torres Strait, including in Logan.
“This program gives local children the chance in their own backyard to experience activities developed by artists from the Asia Pacific region,” Cr Swenson said.
“In conjunction with the exhibition, three of our libraries will be hosting special art activities.
“I encourage all families to take the time to be part of the APT9 Kids on Tour workshops at the Logan Art Gallery and Logan City Council Libraries.”
The activities will be held at Logan West library in February, Jimboomba library in March and Logan North library in April.
No bookings are required. Drop in anytime during the month during opening hours.
