Little children and their parent or carer are invited to join a Learning Facilitator for playful activities in the galleries and studio. In summer we will look at Nick Cave by Howard Arkley, exploring colours using movement, singing and water play. The water play is designed for babies and toddlers, please bring a change of clothes. For those who choose not to do water play there will be alternative activities.
For children from 6 months to 3 years. Followed by morning tea in the café.
Made possible with funds donated by Tim Fairfax AC
