Are you a parent of a teen? If so, you need to tell them about this one.
On Saturday 7 October, the National Gallery of Victoria on St Kilda Road will present the 2017 NGV Art Party for teens.
This is the fifth Art Party organised by the NGV, with over 3,500 teens attending since it's inception.
The after-hours NGV Teen Art Party 2017 will offer interactive workshops and guided tours through the two exhibition blockbusters currently on display at the Gallery: The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture and the Hokusai exhibit.
Hands-on activities will see teens create their own fashion illustrations, drawing inspiration from Dior's collections. Melbourne fashion illustrator, Nicole Onslow will be on hand to create custom sketches of participating teens, adorning them in elaborately illustrated fashion designs.
Art Party guests can also spend the night creating manga animations, taking inspiration from one of Japan’s most prolific artists and a pioneer of Japanese manga, Katsushika Hokusai.
Using iPads, participants will create their own animations inside the exquisitely-designed Hokusai exhibition space.
The Art Party will also include Japanese and French-inspired catering, including sushi, noodles, baguettes and croissants along with exclusive gelato flavours from Pidapipò Gelateria.
Entertainment will see a dance performance by students from Albert Park College and live DJ sets by teen DJs, DJ LAIKS and DJ Sunday.
Teens will learn more about the two magnificent exhibitions on display at the NGV with guided exhibition tours led by Teen Guides.
Don't let your teens miss out on the Art Party of 2017 at NGV International.
When: From 6pm – 9.30pm on Saturday 7 October 2017.
