MAKERSPACE@HOME (Ages 8+)

For ages 8+. We have developed MAKERSPACE@HOME so you and your young ones can engage with art and be inspired to make art.

Creativity and sustainability is key for our online art projects. We have created activities that can be made out of materials most households would have in their cupboards or recycling bins.

Each week we will feature artmaking activities with an extension for older children to build their skills and understanding.


Activity 1 - Paper People Pledge

As part of the Big Draw Festival 2021 the Museum of Art and Culture yapang is creating a community art installation and you are invited to help make it grow.

The Big Draw is a worldwide celebration of drawing that promotes the universal language of drawing as a tool for learning, expression, and invention. This year the theme is: Make the Change.

Join in this exciting event by decorating your own 'paper people' and making a pledge to help make a positive environmental or social change in the world. Please see the resources below to learn how to make your paper people and become involved in MAC yapang's community art installation.
