This pilot virtual program is designed to be playful, relaxed and social. We will explore faces inspired by portraits from the collection using movement and music. There will be lots of time to interact and plenty of opportunity to cuddle your baby.  

Helpful hints: Have some instruments or homespun noise making objects nearby and a peek-a-boo scarf or similar.

For children from 6 months to 18 months.

Little Faces - toddlers (18 months to 3 years) to be offered soon.

Make a booking and the Gallery will email you 24 hours before the program with instructions on how to connect with us using Zoom.

Made possible with funds donated by Tim Fairfax AC
