Native Plants focuses on the 2019 NGV Architecture Commission In Absence and the artist behind it, Kokatha and Nukuni woman Yhonnie Scarce. Inspired by the way First Nations peoples live, cook and prepare foods, discover the abundance of native foods in Australia.

Kenny Pittock a Melbourne artist will facilitate his event using wordplay and a playful approach to everyday objects in his artworks including ceramics, sculptures and paintings. These 45 min artist-led activities uses everyday drawing materials so be sure to have some on the ready for the whole family to join in the fun.

Japanese Modernism sounds like such a big subject for the Under 5s, however it serves to pay Kudos to the NGV Kid's programs facilitated by Stephanie Pohlman, Youth and Families Coordinator and Kayla Clinch, Children's Programs Administration Assistant, NGV Kids in how it is presented to kids in their formative years. Learn about some of the works of art featured and discover how clothing and accessories were used in 1920s-30s Japan for identity. A simple origami demo you can try at home follows.
