The Clay for Kids program provides school children an opportunity to gain valuable artistic experience within their own school environment through the educational resources of the Duldig Studio.
The Telstra Kids Grant provided the Studio with funds to purchase materials and tools for the Clay for Kids workshops. With the guidance of a professional sculptor, the workshops provide practical sessions of clay modelling techniques. Students are encouraged to explore the textures of clay and develop sensitivity to the medium. At the end of the year, an exhibition of the students' works is held at the Duldig Studio to celebrate the students' creativity.
Duldig Studio, a public house museum, art gallery and sculpture garden, is the former home and studio of internationally recognised sculptor Karl Duldig (1902 to 1986) and his wife, artist and inventor Slawa Duldig (née Horowitz) (1902 to 1975). In the artists’ charming former home, garden and studio, the sculptures, drawings, paintings and decorative arts tell the story of their creative lives in Vienna, Singapore and Melbourne. The museum offers the opportunity to explore and enjoy fine art in an authentic domestic setting whilst providing public programs to engage students on the art of sculpture.
