Event description

Description

Do you like to play make believe? Close your eyes and imagine – transform into a creature, fly through the sky, or travel through infinite worlds. Your creativity can take you anywhere with the upcoming NGV Kids on Tour program, now in its fourth year at Bundoora Homestead. This year’s program celebrates the NGV’s summer exhibitions Julian Opie, William Wegman: Being Human, and Escher x nendo.

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

(PLEASE NOTE: The NGV Kids on Tour workshops will be help on the Homestead undercover veranda. Please bring weather-appropriate clothing. Parents must remain on site during these sessions)


Friday 11 January | 11am - 1pm | Dog's Life (5-8 years old)

Inspired by the artist’s playful photography and popular children’s book, NGV Kids have collaborated with William Wegman to create a collage and drawing activity starring Wegman’s own beloved Weimaraners.

Friday 11 January | 2pm - 4pm | Incredible Illusions (8-12 years old)

Artist M.C. Escher’s detailed prints of mind-bending optical illusions will have you seeing stars and scratching your head. Learn the tricks behind some visual illusions and try your hand at making your own with the Incredible Illusions workbook. Impress your friends by challenging their perspective and create your own illusionary work of art.

Sunday 13 January | 12pm - 2pm | Build Your Town (5-8 years old)

What do you see in the streets of your town? Inspired by the NGV’s take on the city of New York, use brightly coloured materials to build your own town – or to create a fantasy urban landscape purely from your imagination. Make believe!

Sunday 13 January | 3pm - 5pm | Terrific Tessellations (8-12 years old)

Create your own 3D work of art, inspired by artist M.C. Escher’s affinity for tessellation patterns. Bring colourful designs to life by sculpting patterns into a tetrahedron shape.
