Little children and their parent or carer are invited to join a Learning Facilitator for playful activities in the galleries.
In winter we will look at Marcia Langton by Brook Andrew and Trent Walter, exploring hands and patterns, using movement, sound, rhythm and play.
Includes finger painting for toddlers and babies (using edible paint) so please bring a spare set of clothes. (There will be alternative activities for those who do not want to get messy!)
For children from 6 months - 3 years. Followed by morning tea in the café.
The program is made possible with funds donated by Tim Fairfax AC.
