 Alexander Calder: Workshop For Kids

Image1

Description

In conjunction with the exhibition, Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor, this NGV Kids installation incorporates hands-on activities for young visitors, including constructing animal sculptures and a multimedia game where they can design virtual public artworks across Melbourne.

Alexander Calder was captivated with movement and animals even as a child; at age 11 he gifted his parents with sculptures he had made of a dog and a duck. Taking direction from this fascination, Alexander Calder: Workshop for Kids presents children with the opportunity to construct their own unique creatures. Using custom-designed paper templates, children will work with intersecting shapes and folding techniques to build animal sculptures.

Just as Calder designed outdoor sculptures on a grand scale, children will be able to create public artworks in a specially designed multimedia game. Equipped with a virtual toolbox of shapes and colours, children will enrich Melbourne by designing public sculptures at popular Melbourne sites St Kilda Beach, Royal Botanical Gardens or NGV International.

This NGV Kids installation/workshop is free and additional information is available via the NGV website.
