On Friday 20th October Gallery Lane Cove in partnership with Lane Cove Council held a free Grandparents and Grandchildren’s (between the ages of 2 and 4 years) collage workshop with artist Jo Williams directing the activity.
Participants took part in a 1 and a half hour workshop exploring the collage medium using black paper as canvases and coloured paper as the collaging material. The artworks were designed to focus on pattern and colour and were open to simple or complex themes, an exercise which proved to be thoroughly enjoyed by both generations. Participants were required to create artworks no bigger than 20 x 10cm in response to Gallery Lane Cove’s October exhibition East Meets West, a collection of artworks of miniature dimensions by the Miniatures Society.
The workshop provided the ideal opportunity for Grandparents to spend time with their grand kids in an educational, creative and productive environment amoungst the backdrop of Gallery Lane Cove’s current exhibitions.
