CMAG on Sunday - Fashioning History

I took Audrey and her friend along to Canberra Museum and Art Gallery (CMAG) for 'Fashioning History' which was one of the excellent monthly Sunday afternoon sessions that CMAG runs.

We don't get along to CMAG too often. It is dominated in Canberra by big national institutions such as the National Gallery and National Museum. In terms of size CMAG would probably just about fill the National Museum's cavernous entry hall. 

Still, there's often really interesting things on there, such as Bush Capital, The Natural History of the ACT exhibit which is there at the moment.

The kids were guided through their artistic endevours by the fabulous Jacqueline Bradley. She was cheerful and great at both asking and handling questions. Jacqueline had run an earlier session with younger kids and I wondered whether this one was easier than the tots (less paint spilled) or harder (more petulance).

The workshop ran for an hour and was a really fun way to spend an afternoon in Canberra. There were probably only a dozen or so kids on the workshop. The kids made some lovely works of art and we'll definitely be back for more.
