Need something for the budding artisits in your family during the upcoming school holidays? MD Gallery, in Whangārei, hosts a “Kids in the Gallery” event to involve and educate them in the arts.
Curator, Megan Dickinson, talks about her gallery, the event, and why she thinks it's important kids know they’re welcome in an art environment. Another positive she speaks about is the educational element that comes with it, where the kids can learn the difference between art, identifying different things and also understanding it. Dickinson says “Visual Arts are important, you know, kids start drawing as soon as they can pick up a pencil” More events are planned for all ages in coming months at the MD Gallery and more info can be found on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/mdgallery.co.nz/
