To coincide with its new exhibition Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor, the NGV has created an interactive installation where kids can unleash their inner inventors.
Calder was a pioneering American sculptor known for introducing motion into his works. More than 90 of his innovative pieces, including many on loan from the Calder Foundation in New York, will be on display at NGV International until August 4.
This workshop is a chance for inspired young gallery-goers to construct their own real-life animal sculptures and imagined public artworks via a specially designed multimedia game.
Equipped with a virtual toolbox of shapes and colours, they can set about building their creations in simulated iconic Melbourne spaces, including St Kilda beach, the Royal Botanic Gardens and the gallery itself.
Entry to Alexander Calder: Workshop for Kids is free.
