NGV Kids on Tour Art Workshops

Wednesday 11th and 25th January 2023

Children & Young People, Program

Free Entry


Ararat Gallery TAMA



Ararat Gallery TAMA (Textile Art Museum Australia) is thrilled to host NGV Kids on Tour this summer!

NGV Kids on Tour offers children and families throughout
regional and metropolitan Victoria the opportunity to engage
with art and creativity through a range of free hands-on activities,
games and workshops developed by the NGV.

The theme for this year’s program is ‘Let’s Make Art!’ The
program shares activities from the NGV children’s exhibition and
book of the same name Making Art: Imagine Everything Is Real
which ran from June to October 2022.

This year’s activities are inspired by methods of working used
by some of the leading European artists from the early twentieth
century. Georges Braque, Remedios Varo, Pablo Picasso
and Natalia Goncharova lived and worked in Paris in the early
twentieth century and are recognised for their innovative and
experimental approaches to making art.

While learning about these artists, children can make their
own surprising works when they explore collage and drawing
techniques, write poetry, play Surrealist games and turn shapes
into sculptures.

→ Activities available for primary ages, and for teens
→ Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult
→ Free entry, bookings essential
→ If you miss out on the workshops, please ask us for a free take-home activity bags for children to enjoy at home.
