'Your Secret Garden' with Guest Artist YURIA OKAMURA
Sat. 21 January 2017, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm AEDT
Abbotsford Convent Foundation and Kids’ Own Publishing Present: Your Secret Garden by The Grand Imaginarium with Guest Artist Yuria Okamura
Children are invited to let their imaginations run wild at the Abbotsford Convent this Summer, as our stunning gardens are brought to life with award-winning children’s authors and leading artists.
Children will uncover secrets hidden in the garden, chosen to inspire stories for their very own book, created and published on the spot. Children will not only take a copy of their own book home, but will also contribute to a special compilation of stories which will be placed around the Convent, creating a story trail for other children to enjoy when they visit the Convent.
Your Secret Garden sessions are recommended for children aged 5 – 12-years-old. Children must be accompanied by an adult. As we are working outside please bring a hat, drinking water and sunscreen.
