In this drop-in activity you are invited to design and create bright, colourful creations inspired by our two exhibitions Robyn Caughlan and the 30th Annual Mil-Pra AECG Exhibition & Art Prize. You will be guided by Murriwarri artist Dr Virginia Keft, whose artwork is included in the Mil-Pra AECG Exhibition and Art prize. Explore colour, texture, and design by cutting, tearing, layering, and experimenting with mixed media and textiles.
