Plenty of kids activities at the National Gallery of Victoria

The National Gallery of Victoria, both at the Ian Potter Centre at Federation Square, and also at the NGV International on St Kilda Road, has available some diverse art and craft activities that come up for the kids of Melbourne from time to time, and this is a stunning thing. All diverse age groups are catered for, from five year olds right up to the teenage years.

For example, the Top Arts exhibition showcases the best VCE artworks. A combination of different types of artworks are represented, from photography and sculptures produced by young, talented people.
