NGV Kids at Home: Art Club with Kate Rohde

Past program


This program takes place virtually

Meet artists and designers online and explore the playful side of making art. Developed for primary-aged children, these 45-minute artist-led activities use everyday art supplies and are designed to stimulate creative thinking. Children are welcome to participate on their own or get the whole family to join in the fun.

Artist: Kate Rohde

Melbourne based artist Kate Rohde takes inspiration from decorative arts, science and mythological creatures to create intensely colourful jewellery and sculptures. Kate has exhibited at the Art Gallery of South Australia, Heide Museum of Modern Art and in 2015 was a finalist in the Rigg Design Prize at the National Gallery of Victoria. Her work is held in the collections of several institutions including the National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of South Australia and Bendigo Art Gallery.
