Join us for free kids art making activities to explore ideas and cultures from across Australia, Asia and the Pacific. Learn as we celebrate community, diversity and mindful contemplation. These activities were developed by QAGOMA in collaboration with artists from the 10th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT10).
Is there someone you miss? Like many people, artist Vipoo Srivilasa was isolated from his family and friends in Thailand during the COVID-19 pandemic. You are invited to decorate a paper flower by writing a message to the person you miss the most, or by drawing their portrait.
Shannon believes that we can work together to create a world where people can be themselves, dress how they want to dress and love who they want to love without fear of judgment. In this activity you can draw a flag design that represents you and what makes you happy.
Phuong Ngo’s family came to Australia from Vietnam in 1981. He is very interested in the history of Vietnam, and the ways the country has been shaped and changed by interactions with other cultures. Inspired by the history of tile manufacturing in Vietnam, you can create your own tile design using the different patterns from collage sheets provided.
Inspired by the tradition of mandala-making, Syagini has created five different mandala designs that you can transform into your own unique artwork. Mandalas are circular artworks that are used in some spiritual and religious practices to create a sense of wellness. Syagini hopes her activity will be a calming and meditative experience.
