I often get asked a lot by parents if I know of any good art classes or workshops their children could do outside of school. Art Play at federation Square have a wide range of contemporary and super creative art workshops purely dedicated to children from toddlers to 12 year olds. Click on the link to view what’s on at that moment and if you decide to go to a workshop, let me know how it was!
Whilst you’re out in the city, you might want to check out NGV kids. The Viktor and Rolf kids space is sure to be a hit: http://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/exhibition/atelier-viktorandrolf-for-kids/ “As part of the Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists exhibition, NGV Kids presents Atelier: Viktor&Rolf for Kids, an interactive space designed especially for children and families. Here the fashion designers share their experimental approach to fashion and design through displays, multimedia experiences and hands-on activities.”
…and just to jam-pack a little more art into your day, you could also check out Fake Food Park by Martí Guixé for Kids: http://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/exhibition/marti-guixe/ “Especially for NGV Kids, Catalan food designer Martí Guixé has created a vibrant environment in which children are inspired to think creatively about common foods via drawing challenges and hands-on activities.”
