Children & Young People, Program

10.00am - 4.00pm
Ararat Gallery TAMA
Ararat Gallery TAMA (Textile Art Museum Australia) is thrilled to once again host NGV Kids on Tour this summer!
NGV Kids on Tour offers families throughout Victoria the opportunity to engage with art through free hands-on activities, virtual programs and workshops. In 2021 the theme of the NGV Kids on Tour program is ART IS FOR EVERYONE.
For the first time, Ararat Gallery TAMA will provide free take-home activity packs for children to enjoy in the comfort of their own home. The take-home packs include activities such as Family Drawing with Alice Oehr, Silly Sketches with Kenny Pittock and the Moko Moko Park Puppet Show with Misaki Kawai, aimed to connect communities with the NGV’s Summer Festival exhibitions. Bring your kids into Ararat Gallery TAMA to receive their pack from 9th – 17th January!
Families can also join Melbourne artist Troy Emery in a free virtual event, as he engages children and families in an interactive art-making program highlighting the importance of animals within our eco-system. Inspired by the NGV Triennial 2020 theme of Conservation, children can cut, collage and create their own animal using a free, printable activity template made with Troy for the NGV Kids Summer Festival. This program for primary school aged children will be delivered online from Wednesday 13th January 2021 at 11am. Go to ngv.vic.gov.au/program/critical-creatures/ to book your spot!
NGV Kids on Tour is generously supported by The Truby and Florence Williams Charitable Trust, managed by Equity Trustees, and the Packer Family and Crown Resorts Foundations as part of the Your NGV Arts Access Program for Students, Children and Families.
