Conservatory to host a shipwreck adventure
The Children’s Art in the Conservatory program returns to the Rosalind Park Conservatory with Go Islands!
Now in its ninth year, the program sees an artist transform the space into an interactive display for children.
Local artists Lisa D’Onofrio and Stephen Parsons were the successful artists this year, after their concept was selected by students from Spring Gully Primary School.
Each year, students from a different school select the successful installation.
Go Islands! is an interactive art installation using the theme of a ship wreck. It involves different areas which children can explore and experience, as well as opportunities for imaginative play, creating, building, sharing and making. There will be sand, the sea, six different islands and giant jellyfish.
City of Greater Bendigo Capital Venues and Events Manager David Lloyd said the program was always popular with young families.
“Art in the Conservatory coincides with the school holidays and is a great, free and fun activity for children,” Mr Lloyd said.
“The City is very pleased to be able to support art programs like this across Greater Bendigo, throughout the year.”
Art in the Conservatory is free and will be open daily from 11am to 3pm from September 21 to 30 (it will be closed on September 27).
