Fun Fact - Did you know Catherine the Great wrote Russia's first children's book?

The NGV's Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition; Masterpieces from the Hermitage: The Legacy of Catherine the Great, sees the release of a new children's art book.

Catherine the Great: An Art Book for Kids presents activities, illustrations and images bound in hardback, designed for children aged six and up.

Young historians will discover the powerful world of the longest-ruling female leader of Russia, and her passion for collecting art and treasures. The book features double-page spreads highlighting pieces displayed in the exhibition, along with fun and interesting facts.

Presented in chapter format, pages are filled with charismatic illustrations by Melbourne-based artist Kat Chadwick. Your child's inner artist will be more than satisfied with an array of drawing and craft activities e.g. create a crown of jewels and build a palace.

Catherine the Great: An Art Book for Kids is part of a series of children's books created by the NGV to introduce and inspire a young interest in contemporary and historical art.

Express Yourself: An Activity Book for Kids by Romance Was Born and Master the Arts! A Kids’ Activity Book About Italian Masterpieces recently won 2015 International Book Awards.

Catherine the Great: An Art Book for Kids is available to buy for $14.95, from the NGV design store
