9am–5pm, daily

Share in a child’s early art experiences and discover artworks from the NGV together with online sessions designed for children aged 2 – 5 years and their parents or carers.

Maree Clarke: Ancestral Memories is the first major retrospective of Melbourne-based artist and designer, Maree Clarke, who is a Yorta Yorta / Wamba Wamba / Mutti Mutti / Boonwurrung woman. Maree makes art to connect with her culture and keep the traditions of her people alive. She shares it with family, friends and community to keep culture strong for the next generation.

In this session children watch a video introduction of Maree introducing her exhibition and talking about possum skin cloaks before exploring some works from the exhibition with the NGV host. This program includes an art-making demonstration inspired by possum skin cloaks using an activity sheet developed by Maree Clarke and NGV, presented as part of NAIDOC Week.

Facilitated by Stephanie Pohlman, Youth and Families Coordinator.
