REACHING OUT

DISCOVERING MUSEUMS, A UNIQUE 6-WEEK PROGRAM FOR PRESCHOOL + EARLY STAGE 1.

What is a museum? In this 6-week program, NERAM invites children to investigate museums around the world. What do they hold? What is the largest museum in the world? What is the smallest? Children are then introduced to the wide selection of museums in Armidale and the treasures they hold. Attending a guided tour to NERAM, children will focus on the art museum and the role of an artist. After a visit from a local artist, children are then inspired to create and curate their own exhibition for family and friends to enjoy and celebrate. Find out more >>
