ArtPlay’s program for children and families aims to be challenging, creative, enlightening and meaningful.

By working with professional artists, children can explore their own creativity and self-expression and share unique artistic experiences.

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, school holiday activities, weekday school and under fives programs as well as special programs run in conjunction with Melbourne events and festivals.

ArtPlay caters for babies through to children aged up to 12 years of age.
