School Holidays at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery
Come along to the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery to see felt-tip superhero TextaQueen’s exhibition Between you and me, a colourful exploration of identity. Children can create their own texta drawing by decorating a superhero cape.
Also see Plan A / Plan B: The fanciful world of Stephen Mushin featuring the floating cowship powered by farting cows and designs for a polar bear habitat made of recycled refrigerators. Add your own futuristic design to the massive magnet wall.
The gallery also has a range of school holiday programs:
