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 drawing materials 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: Charlotte Alldis

The works of Melbourne artist Charlotte Alldis are playful and intuitive, oozing with colour and wild wriggling figures that float across their landscapes. She has an education background in psychology and is currently undertaking training in art therapy. Charlotte co-founded Making A Mess, a series of workshops and events based around playfulness, mark making and community creativity and mindfulness.
