Event description

Description

Now in its third year at Bundoora Homestead, this free creative and interactive workshop is part of the NGV’S Kids on Tour program, celebrating the NGV Triennial and Fiona Hall: Uneasy Seasons exhibitions.

Children can immerse themselves in creative activities such as drawing, sculpting and making. Meanwhile, parents are invited to relax and enjoy the exhibitions and café at the Homestead while their young art lovers create contemporary masterpieces!


11am Thursday 11 Jan - My Contemporary Art Book (5-8 years old)

Ages 5-8 years. To coincide with the NGV Triennial, this richly illustrated children’s publication is packed with stories of artist’s childhoods, interesting facts about their days in the studio and information about their artworks. Join Chicago-based artist Nick Cave on a jog along the river, discover Xu Zhen’s immense MadeIn studio in Shanghai, and hear what inspired Alexandra Kehayoglou to create vast tapestry artworks. Also contained in each chapter are specially created art challenges that will inspire young children and families to think about contemporary art and design in a new way.


2pm Thursday 11 Jan - Fiona Hall: Send a Message (8-12 years old)

Ages 8-12 years. Australian artist Fiona Hall’s artworks comment on some of the most important issues of our time. Today, as we communicate frequently through technology, symbols are an important way to express our feelings. Emojis, first created in Japan and now recognised worldwide through their use in text messages, have become one of the simplest and most popular ways to communicate how we feel. Hall invites young people to make an emoji to express how they feel about the world they live in.


11am Friday 12 Jan - Fiona Hall: Who Lives Here? (5-8 years old)

Ages 5-8 years. Uneasy Seasons reflects leading Australian artist Fiona Hall’s lifelong passion for the natural world and her concerns about growing pressures on the environment. Workshop participants are invited to consider and respond to the natural world with this collage activity.

For the workshop Who Lives Here?, Fiona Hall invites children to create an animal and its habitat. There are millions of different species that live on planet Earth. Animals, plants, fungi and tiny microorganisms are all living things. The group of animals with no backbone, called invertebrates – including insects, spiders and crabs make up the majority of the animals on the planet.


2pm Friday 12 Jan - Everybody Play| Everyone (8+ years old)

Ages 8 years +. Test yourself, your friends, and your family when you play this fun game about everybody. Shake a leg, listen up and get ready to answer silly and serious questions about the human body and show off your skills along the way. The race is on! Who will be first to cross the finish line?
