About NGV Teens

See art, make art, meet artists, be inspired.

NGV Teens offers specially tailored programming that connects young people with art and artists at the Gallery. We aim to offer the NGV as a space for young people from all backgrounds to express themselves through creative projects and discussions of the big ideas behind great art. Young creatives aged 13-17 can get involved to gain special access to the NGV, and to the broader creative community of visual artists, designers and performers in Victoria.

Publications

Fantastic, ambitious, angry, mysterious: take a step inside the extraordinary lives and times of twenty-five artists who have made an impact, and told a good story along the way. You’re invited to join author Ronnie Scott and guests on a journey through twenty-five of the most dramatic and exciting stories about artists and artworks in new NGV teen publication 25 International Artists Who Have Made an Impact.

We are extremely thankful to Mrs Krystyna Campbell-Pretty and the Campbell-Pretty Family for their generous support which has made this publication possible and has broadened access to the NGV Collection through ongoing programming for young visitors.
