Gympie Bone Museum guest stars at Gympie Regional Gallery

One of the best things about Gympie is the way community comes together. We’ve always said we are looking for a hand up not a hand out so it’s wonderful to receive an invitation from Gympie Regional Gallery to deliver activities as part of their Holiday Fun series.

We’re proud to present 3 artistic twists on our regular workshops to be delivered by Daniel at the Gallery on Tuesday 21 January.

5 KINDS OF BONES with a twist = Bone Mandalas! Did you know that all animal bones can be sorted and classified into just five categories? Learn more about bones then use their shapes to make fabulous mandalas. For children 6 years and older. 10.00 am to 11.00 am 21 January $6 per person

MEET THE FLESH EATING BEETLES with a twist = paint the beetles on your arms! Check out our amazing beetle specimens in a tank and watch their behaviour. Learn their lifecycle and ask Daniel all your creepy crawly questions. Freak out your family – use face paints to create some little beetles running up your arm! For children 6 years and older. 11.30 am to 12.30 pm 21 January. $6 per person

MAGNIFY YOUR WORLD with a twist = become a crazy cross between an artist and a scientist! Discover what everyday objects look like up close with our microscopes and magnifiers. Bring some objects from home to check out i.e. feathers, leaves, sticks and just about anything small. You can also check out your clothes, your skin, your hair and even your ears! Make some drawings of your discoveries! For children 6 years and older. 1.30 pm to 2.30pm 21 January. $6 per person
