Upcycled Habitats with Tai Snaith

Sun 17 Jan 21, 11am–11.45am

Past program


This program takes place virtually

Transform used paper back into trees again! With Melbourne artist Tai Snaith, discover environmentally-conscious ways to create animal habitats using recycled materials, inspired by the NGV Triennial theme of Conservation. Tai will demonstrate collage techniques to create an artistic habitat of your choosing – perhaps a rainforest, an urban landscape or a patchwork of rolling hills.

Artist: Tai Snaith

Tai Snaith is an artist, writer and broadcaster. She writes and illustrates picture books for children, makes ceramics and produces paintings and collages as well as larger public projects.

Online Event Instructions

This program developed for primary school aged children will be delivered online. We look forward to hearing your questions or comments via the comments section.

Children may like to make along with Tai, we suggest having some collage materials ready such as paper, a collection of recyclable materials such as cardboard, kitchen rolls, string, bottle tops or egg cartons, plus art materials such as scissors, PVA glue and coloured pencils or markers. Alternatively you can watch, take inspiration and create later.
