What happens when a bubble bursts? What happens when moving air meets still water? Come along to Junior Art Scientists: What Happens When…? and find out!

Bunjil Place presents ‘Junior Art Scientists: What Happens When…?’

This interactive art workshop for primary-aged students and their parents invites participants to play with colourful liquids and create artworks while asking the question ‘What Happens When…?’. Designed as a companion workshop to Ash Keating’s exhibition Pressure this summer holiday workshop provides an opportunity for young children to engage with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) thinking and explore different forces of control to make art.

Bring your curiosity and prepare to be inspired - from flowers and ink to coffee filters and bubbles, it’s sure to be a fun morning of experiments and colour!


  • Painting with Bubbles
  • Ink Blowing
  • Flower Petal Dyes
  • Chromatography Flowers

*We encourage you to bring any flowers from home that you might like to make dye with!
