Art Play Love with City of Melbourne’s ArtPlay
From drawing and painting activities to vocal adventures to ensemble workshops to backyard art and play – ArtPlay offers these and many more! The City of Melbourne’s ArtPlay program for children and families is a place where children can play, imagine and explore their creativity, express themselves and share unique artistic experiences with professional artists. Their offerings make for unique experiences for kids. You can find ArtPlay at Birarrung Marr, Behind Federation Square in the Melbourne CBD.
The centre runs more than 300 workshops, events and performances every year for babies up to twelve-year-olds. These are offered either free or at very affordable prices ranging from $15 up. Short workshops for young children sit alongside extended creative experiences for older children. The artists, activities and workshops reflect Melbourne’s diversity and the incredible talent that is available to us.
There are weekend programs, school holiday activities, weekday school and under fives programs as well as special programs relating to Melbourne events and festivals. Have a look at their events page for upcoming events. Here are videos showing some of their activities.
