Get creative with patterns and dance at Dogwood Crossing, Miles

22 April 2015

Kids can explore brightly coloured transformative patterns including kaleidoscopes, tessellations and camouflage when the Queensland Art Gallery │Gallery of Modern Art’s (QAGOMA) latest interactive Kids on Tour program ‘Pattern Bandits’ visits Dogwood Crossing, Miles from Tuesday 28 to Thursday 30 April.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Community and Cultural Development and Health Services Councillor Carolyn Tillman said the program is a great opportunity for children and families to have fun together exploring different patterns, colours and textures.

“Los Angeles-based, Australian artist Jemima Wyman has worked with the QAGOMA Children’s Art Centre to develop this hands-on regional tour program following the success of her ‘Pattern Bandits’ exhibition at GOMA last year,” she said.

“Young visitors and families will be able to take part in a range of hands on and multi-media activities designed by the artists including: create their own personalised bandannas, perform with the artist’s dance video Pattern Power Moves, create a spinning mandala to discover how patterns can be transformed by movement, and make a digital kaleidoscopic tessellation in the multimedia activity Harlequin Hallway.

“Parents and children can drop-in after school at 3.30pm from Tuesday 28 to Thursday 30 April for a fun afternoon of creating, dancing and designing. I strongly encourage parents to book ahead by contacting Dogwood Crossing, Miles.”

The ‘Kids on Tour: Pattern Bandits’ program is suitable for children aged from 3 to 12 years. Bookings are essential, so get in quick to secure your place by contacting Dogwood Crossing, Miles on 07 4628 5330 or dogwood.crossing@wdrc.qld.gov.au.
