What's on City of Melbourne

Art for children and young people


ArtPlay is a civic studio where families and children can be creative and express themselves in an open and supportive environment.

At ArtPlay, children up to the age of 13 and their families are encouraged to learn the language of art together. From here, they can move on to galleries, performances and Melbourne’s other art offerings with confidence and curiosity.
