Easter Holiday Camp for Kids


Spend the Easter holidays at The Model exploring the building and the great outdoors! Artist Naomi Draper has planned a week of creativity, exploration and adventure. The Easter Holiday art camp will physically explore the theme of camping throughout The Model. Naomi who worked with the Practice exhibition by Kid’s Own in 2014 wants to create an exciting adventure for children which will allow them to explore and get to know the space at The Model. The group will move beyond the education room to set up camp and claim ownership of other areas of the building. With the landscapes of The Niland Collection as a backdrop, the galleries will become one of the campsites. Inspired by Shared Visions: The Model Collects, there will be a special activity focusing on “collecting” where participants can pack, preserve and consider how their findings and treasures can be presented to others. Shelter building, treasure hunting and storytelling are just some of the activities that will be explored through drawing, sculpture, animation, listening and book making processes. Places are limited to 14 per session and bookings are now being taken.
