Bathurst Regional Art Gallery Bathurst
Where are we going today?
If your kids love to be creative, and love art, then why not spend the next family day out in a great art gallery!
The Bathurst Regional Art Gallery is a great place to visit with slightly older kids. It gives them an introduction into the art world, AND it supports local artists. They can appreciate the colours and techniques used in the collections, and it's a great talking point for families to discuss what they love and don't love about the pieces.
The Bathurst Regional Art Gallery has moving exhibits, which mean that next time you visit, you might just see something new!
All of the exhibits in the gallery cover different themes, so each space offers something new and fascinating for the kids.
You might come across exhibits on photography, or the collection might be featuring a specific artist. There might be paintings, or sculptures, and other mediums that kids might be consider to be art.
It's more than just paint!
They of course, have permanent collections so you can always go back and see your favourites on your next visit.
The gallery have great summer holiday programs for kids, where they can work with local artists and get their hands dirty, they have exhibition openings and also talks with very talented artists, so kids - if you have any questions, that is the time to find out the answer!
