School Holiday pic april 2016

There’s always plenty for kids to do at the Art Gallery of Western Australia. We have trails available where you can wander around the Gallery at your own pace, or you can join in with one of our school holiday activities.


School Holiday Activities

During the school holidays we make available a range of art activities for your school age children to participate in.


Interactive drawing space

In the State Art Collection display Your Collection 1920 - 1960 there is a drawing table for children and adults to enjoy! Come and make your own work using the designs and patterns on the cloths in the display cases as inspiration. You can take your work with you as a memory of your time in the gallery or display it within the space for everyone to appreciate.
