Sydney Moderns And Sketching In The Museum

Today we went to see the Sydney Moderns exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW. The exhibition is mainly of paintings and prints, all by Australian artists depicting Sydney from the 1920s through to the post war years.

We used the great children's trail supplied free by the gallery, but bring your own pencils if you're going as the snobby woman on the desk refused to allow under 8s to use them!

 Of course we weren't allowed to take pictures but here are some from the gallery website.

Here are some of the children's sketches from the activity guide.

After the gallery we picnicked in Hyde Park before visiting the Australian Museum and its Search and Discover hands-on gallery for some sketching. We also took the opportunity to visit the Wildlife photographer of the Year exhibition.
