For Ages 2-8. We have developed ARTSPACE@HOME so you and your young ones can engage with art and be inspired to make art.

Creativity and sustainability is key for our online art projects. We have created activities that can be made out of materials most households would have in their cupboards or recycling bins.

Getting Started

For each activity:

  • Download the resources and follow the instructions as you create your very own artwork!
  • Watch the video (where applicable) to learn more about the artists and their work.
  • Share your creations with us on Facebook and Instagram at @themacmuseum.

Activity 1 - Paper People Pledge

As part of the Big Draw Festival 2021 the Museum of Art and Culture yapang is creating a community art installation and you are invited to help make it grow.

The Big Draw is a worldwide celebration of drawing that promotes the universal language of drawing as a tool for learning, expression, and invention. This year the theme is: Make the Change.
