Kid's APT on tour in Cooktown! What a Great Day!

On Saturday 16 January 2010, Cooktown hosted a free day of art activities simultaneously with the Queensland Art Gallery, as part of the Kids’ APT Summer Festival.  Website: http://qag.qld.gov.au/exhibitions/current/apt6/kids_apt/kids_apt_on_tour.  The Kids’ APT on Tour featured interactive activities for children and families created by a number of artists in the exhibition, including Ayaz Jokhio, Minam Apang and Runa Islam. All the materials to create the art using the different themes was provided free of charge and posted to Cooktown by the Queensland Art Gallery Gallery of Modern Art.  The projects were developed to reflect the themes of the Asia PacificTriennial exhibition and offered children and families insights into contemporary art across the Asia Pacific region.  The children who attended in Cooktown were enthralled and excited by the many art activities.  Creativity was very high and the results as seen in the photos show that the children produced many exciting and fun art works.  The adults were just as interested in participating and creating.  The day was a lot of fun.If you are able to open this site at Photosynth Kids APT it is also worth a look.
