24 Jul 2017 - 25 Aug 2017

Enter the dazzling world of Light Play… a unique exhibition which explores the creative potential of light.

Light Play transforms the entire Children’s Gallery into a dynamic light-based studio, with over-head projectors, illuminated light boxes, spotlights, interactive light tables and a multitude of diverse recycled materials. Children will investigate the different properties of light and discover how light interacts with materials, and then create their own kaleidoscopic patterns and luminous constructions.

Light Play embraces the philosophies of Reggio Emilia and REmida to make a creative space for young children aged three to eight years, which encourages collaborative play, experimentation and discovery-based learning. The exhibition was developed by Ipswich Art Gallery staff in collaboration with early childhood specialists. Workshops are guided by a qualified educator in collaboration with each group’s teachers, parents and carers.
