The MOA is very excited to announce that registration is now open for two 2015 summer programs focusing on the Aboriginal people of Australia.
The Museum will offer three one-week sessions of “An Australian Adventure” Summer Camp: July 6-10, July 13-17, and July 20-24. Using music, art, stories, games, and other activities campers will learn about the culture and traditions of the Aboriginal people of Australia. This half-day camp is designed for children ages 6 to 12. The fee is $125 ($100 for MOA Friends) for a one week session, which includes all supplies and daily refreshments. Each session is limited to 15 children.
For the third year, the Museum will also offer a one-day workshop for teens, ages 12 to 16. “Dots Galore” will take place on Monday, July 27, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Aboriginal people of Australia are famous for dot painting. Looking at different types of dot painted works, teens will learn how they are created, why dots are used, and what the symbols mean. Using dot painted artworks in the museum’s collection as inspiration, participants will create their own dot covered art piece. The fee is $45 ($30 for MOA Friends), which includes all supplies and a snack. The workshop is limited to 10 participants.
