ArtPlay brings together children (from babies to 13 years of age) and artists to explore and create innovative arts experiences that encourage self-expression and playful exchange.
Join the ArtPlay program online, at home or at our Birrarung Marr venue.
ArtPlay’s program for children and families aims to be challenging, creative and meaningful. Children explore their creativity and self-expression and share unique artistic experiences with professional artists.
The centre runs more than 300 workshops, events and performances every year. Short workshops for young children sit alongside extended creative experiences for older children. Artists, workshop content and participants reflect Melbourne’s diversity.
ArtPlay’s activities are either free or offered at affordable prices. They include weekend programs, online and at-home activities, school holiday activities, weekday school and under fives programs as well as special programs run in conjunction with Melbourne events and festivals. Bookings are required for most events, however there are also free drop-in workshops available. Be sure to check out what’s on before dropping by.
ArtPlay caters for babies through to children aged up to 13 years of age.
