Spark the imagination, generate new ideas, and share thoughts in these lively online sessions about art for children aged 3 – 5 years and their parents and carers. In each session, children discover works of art from the NGV Collection and watch a demonstration of an art-making activity that can be made at home or school using everyday materials.

This activity is suitable to join from home, kindergarten or playgroup. Groups are welcome to attend. Participation in the program’s chat function is encouraged. For privacy, participant microphones and cameras will be turned off.

Do you like to dress up? From spikey leather jackets to fairytale-worthy dresses, children can explore vibrant fabrics and fashion styles, and see how fashion can say something about who we are or want to be.

Inspired by fashion and textile outfits in the NGV collection, look at how designers were influenced by fantasy, fairytales and the Australian landscape. From bejewelled gowns to fancy hats, this program delves into the art of self-expression, looking at fashion created for different occasions and purposes.
