Kids unleash their inner fashion designer
Want something creative for the kids to do over the Christmas holidays? As part of the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Kids on Tour program, children and families can get arty at FREE hands-on art making activities and workshops taking place at Linden New Art each day from Tuesday 17th to Wednesday 25th January 2017 (except Monday 23rd January).
The activities on offer are designed to encourage children to explore contemporary art and design. The activities relate to a current exhibition at the NGV - Viktor&Rolf Fashion Artists. Amsterdam-based fashion artists Viktor&Rolf create designs that reflect an interest in fantasy and storytelling.

Crafted especially for children is Atelier: Viktor&Rolf for Kids, an interactive space in which designers share an experimental approach to design through displays, multimedia experiences and hands-on activities. Inspired by Viktor&Rolf's use of structure and layering, children are invited to use a range of paper products, including white crepe paper and strands of raffia to make fancy fashion accessories.
