When you think of a gallery, you traditionally think of a minimalistic, silent space where hard-core art enthusiasts hang out. The National Portrait Gallery is throwing this notion on its head by encouraging more children into the gallery through their Little Faces program.

The Little Faces program gives parents and carers with young children (6 months to 3 years) the opportunity to explore the gallery and engage in age-appropriate activities.

The winter sessions will explore the portrait of Charles Teo 2012 by Adam Chang and focus on exploring faces, colour and sound.



Run by a Gallery Learning Facilitator, the sessions run the first Tuesday and Wednesday of each month, with two sessions on each day at 9:30-10:00am and 10:30-11:00am.

The sessions are followed by morning tea in the café, which provides a great opportunity to chat and connect with other families.

Each session costs $10, but this price includes tea/coffee.

Bookings are essential.
