NGV Kids on Tour


11.00 am - 2.00 pm (daily)



NGV Kids on Tour offers children and families throughout regional and metropolitan Victoria the opportunity to engage with art and creativity through a range of free, hands-on activities and workshops. Check out what we have planned:

Tuesday 18 January - Collecting Maypal
When Yolŋu author, filmmaker and artist Siena Mayutu Wurmarri Stubbs was a child, she loved spending time with her family hunting different varieties of shellfish known as maypal in Yolŋu Matha (the language of Yolŋu people). In this board game children play a collecting game and find out about different maypal and where they live along the way. .

Wed 19 January - Paper Jewels
This making activity takes inspiration from the National Gallery of Victoria’s collection of jewellery. Children create something precious when they make a paper necklace featuring imagery of gold, diamonds and pearls.

Thu 20 January - Noisy Birds! Dhawuuŋgu Ŋutu’ Wäyin Malanynha 
Siena Mayutu Wurmarri Stubbs is a Yolŋu author, filmmaker and artist. She draws inspiration from her culture and her connections to the land, including her homeland, Bawaka, East Arnhem Land.  

Who am I? Children discover some of Siena’s favourite birds from Arnhem Land, and learn their names in Yolŋu Matha (the language of Yolŋu people) in this guessing and drawing game. 

All activities are suitable for children aged 5+. Parent supervision is required. To learn more about NGV Kids visit NGV Kids | NGV
