Get hands on at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery these school holidays at the Ken Done-nut Shop this week.
The interactive pop-up has been inspired by the artist’s bright and colourful exhibition Paintings You Probably Haven’t Seen.
Community and Cultural Development Committee Chairperson, Councillor Colleen Doyle, said the activity was a great way to get kids involved in art these school holidays.
“We all know that art exhibitions are wonderful to come and see, but encouraging kids to get hands-on and create their own works of art is a fantastic way to give them a more comprehensive art experience,” Cr Doyle said.
“In this pop-up kids will be able to roll and glaze their own Ken Done-nuts from paper-based clay, which I’m sure will create some really interesting pieces.”
Paintings You Probably Haven’t Seen is the first Done solo exhibition hosted in Townsville.
A lot of the paintings feature the things that Done loves best, including the beach and the reef, which resonates strongly with tropical audiences.
The Ken Done-nut Shop will be open from 13 to 17 January from 10am to midday.
Entry to Perc Tucker Regional Gallery is free.
