Children creating art in The Lane

LRG KIDS

We believe that art can inspire the youngest to the biggest kid. That’s why we’ve created a dedicated immersive art-play space right here at LRG!
The Lane is a great space to explore and play, and we design the space with the themes of our exhibition program in mind.
Access to The Lane is always FREE.

OPEN DAYS

Our Open Days initiate creative action and inspiration across all gallery spaces for the whole family to enjoy.

OPEN DAY: Pattern Making

Saturday 22 May
1pm to 3pm

Artist Tricky Walsh often uses a repetition of geometry to create striking patterns in their work. Using a template, various tools and materials, participants will be encouraged to explore different uses of geometry to create their own patterns.
This activity is free for kids and will take place in the gallery.
Bookings are essential as spaces are limited.

OPEN DAY: Mazes & Labyrinths

Saturday 19 June
1pm to 3pm

Using grid drawing papers as a guide, kids attending this session will design their own maze. At the end of the activity, participants will have the option to swap photocopies of their mazes with others in the group, test them out and explore them together.
This free activity for kids will take place in the gallery.
Bookings are essential as spaces are limited.

OPEN DAY: DIY Kaleidoscope

Saturday  17 July
1pm to 3pm

Some of the patterns in Tricky Walsh’s work could be described as kaleidoscopic. This engaging activity will allow kids to assemble their own kaleidoscopes using a kit of basic materials, exploring how different compositions of colour and shape can produce endless possibilities and visual effects.
This free activity for kids will take place in the gallery.
Bookings are essential as spaces are limited.

OPEN DAY: Make a Polylink

Saturday 5 June
1pm to 3pm

The way artist Tricky Walsh uses geometric patterns in their work often creates a surreal and playful sense of other dimensions. Participants will construct a three-dimensional shape called a polylink by connecting various colourful materials, and decorate using colours and patterns inspired by Tricky’s visually striking works.This activity is free for kids and will take place in the gallery workshop.
Bookings are essential as spaces are limited.

OPEN DAY: Prism Boxes

Saturday 3 July
1pm to 3pm

Combining elements of mathematics and creativity, this activity will involve transforming a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional form through cutting and folding, differing materials and colours to decorate their shapes before putting together their own prism to take home! This free activity for kids will take place in the gallery workshop.
Bookings are essential as spaces are limited.

OPEN DAY: Spirograph Drawing

Saturday 31 July
1pm to 3pm

The Artist Tricky Walsh’s approach to image making incorporates mathematical methods and abstract geometric patterns, giving a playful and surreal nature to their work. This workshop will encourage kids to employ a similar approach to image making using a Spirograph. Participants will have the chance to explore different colours, materials and effects with the Spirograph while encountering Tricky Walsh’s work. This free activity for kids will take place in gallery.
