    Where Sport Meets Art

    Tuesday 19 Aug 2014, 10.30- 11.30am
    Presented by Culture Mamas

    Parents and children are invited to discover the secrets of the Basil Sellers Art Prize at our family friendly workshops. At each workshop, families will enjoy a tour of the exhibition, before making their own artwork inspired by a special blend of art and sport.

    Culture Mamas was established in 2012 by two art-loving mums and lifelong friends, Rebecca Asp and Claire McClelland. Committed to helping parents connect to the very best arts and culture in Melbourne, Culture Mamas encourages mums dads and carers to connect with the arts to stimulate their intellect and connect with a supportive network of like-minded souls.

    Other workshops will be held on:

    13 September

    30 September

    9 October

    Free event | RSVP above by clicking the orange box.
