Related exhibitions: A Handful Of Dust 10,000 Ships

Welcome to Spring Break 2019!

From Wednesday to Sunday, March 20-24, The Polygon will be offering hands-on workshops and activities designed to stimulate imagination.

Activities for 2019 will be created to complement the current exhibitions a Handful of Dust and 10,000 Ships.

Wednesday – Friday:
What is negative space? By making stencils in different ways and applying them to create take-home images using dry media, we will discover how this artistic concept relates to the exhibition a Handful of Dust. Visitors of all ages will also be able to contribute to a collaborative work that will become more complex as this three day program unfolds.

Saturday – Sunday:
Fog horns, seagulls, and the sound of rolling waves can be a source of inspiration to both painters and photographers alike. Just as local camera enthusiast Rod Logan chronicled the passing of 10,000 Ships through the local harbour, we'll be using water soluble paints and colouring crayons to document our wonderful view of the seaside landscape.

Good to know
Kids 12 and under are required to bring a parent or caretaker to attend the program.

Activities are geared towards ages 6-12, however all are welcome to join and participate.

Drop in any day or every day, the activities vary throughout the week.

Spring Break activities are a public event and an official photographer will be taking photographs for use by The Polygon’s marketing and publicity purposes, including website and social media. Please contact a member of staff on the day if you wish to be exempted from this activity.
