NGV Kids on Tour

Wimmera children can participate in National Gallery of Victoria’s largest-ever free program of art-driven activities and workshops next week.

NGV Kids on Tour leaders will visit Horsham Regional Art Gallery from Sunday to January 19.

Town hall venue marketing officer Charee Smith encouraged Wimmera families to make the most of the NGV’s 2020 children’s program, the most extensive in the tour’s seven-
year history.

“The program explores the theme ‘Make art, Make friends’ through hands-on activities,” she said.

“Highlights include a creative kit for children designed by contemporary artist Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS, containing a pop-up surprise and a set of alphabet stickers to write a message for a friend.”

NGV director Tony Ellwood said the tour featured workshops inspired by the gallery’s summer exhibition, KAWS: PLAYTIME. 

He said the program aimed to connect regional and metropolitan communities with the gallery’s exhibitions. 

“The gallery has a long-standing commitment to connecting with children and families across the state through accessible art-inspired activities,” he said.

“NGV Kids on Tour continues to grow and 2020 will be our biggest year yet, providing more opportunities for kids across Victoria to engage with programming by Australia’s most visited gallery.” 

NGV Kids on Tour activities are suitable for children aged three to 12. 

People can visit for an events schedule and more information about the gallery’s school holiday activities.
