For Kids & Families
Encourage your child’s curiosity and creativity with joyful, artist-led programs and activities.
The National Gallery is an inspiring place for people of all ages. Join us to experience art, artists and art making as we embark on a lifelong art journey together.
Our programs for kids and families centre around intergenerational connection and encourage you to grow your knowledge and enjoyment of art through shared experiences. Fostering a love of art from an early age, we inspire creativity, inclusivity, engagement and learning through art and artists.
Whether you join us for creative play at the Gallery or imagine and connect from home, our Kids & Families programs are sure to bring out the childhood wonder in all of us.
Art Steps is a series of creative making activities produced by artists for children to enjoy with family and friends. Join us at the Gallery during school holidays or make and share from home any time.
Plan an art adventure for the whole family at the National Gallery.
