The Ararat Gallery Textile Art Museum Australia is providing an opportunity for young artists to express their artistic nature at home with a new Mini Makers free take-home activity kit.
The Gallery is known for its popular monthly Mini Makers Art Club sessions, giving young ones a chance to create a beautiful piece of work in a gallery environment.
Mayor Jo Armstrong said the take-home kits were a "great way" for young artists to keep engaged at home.
"While the Mini Makers program usually consists of craft activities held in Gallery, our staff chose a different route to accommodate COVIDsafe guidelines by offering take-away kits," she said.
"The take-home kits are a great way for young artists to continue developing creative expression and fine motor skills within the home."
Ms Armstrong emphasised the importance of exposing young children to fun and creative art experiences.
"Mini Makers at home ensures our community can still enjoy the creative activities and unleash that budding creativity that forms part of the popular kids program," she said.
"This month's take-away kit is centred around ducks and nature - all you need is a glue stick and a pair of scissors.
"We look forward to welcoming back families at the Gallery for regular Mini Maker workshops in December."
The activity packs are available to collect from the Gallery reception throughout October and November 2021.
