We had a few rainy days during the school holidays and on one particular one we decided to head for the city and explore the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) and their kids program Pastello - Draw Act. As part of the NGV commitment to design and children’s programming, Italian design duo Erika Zorzi and Matteo Sangalli of Mathery Studio have designed a new immersive kids space that broadens our appreciation of the simple act of drawing.

Pastello – Draw Act re-imagines traditional drawing tools and processes. Children are invited to use their bodies to draw with their heads, feet and of course hands using crayon spheres and other unusual tools. We love taking the kids to the art gallery and a few friends of ours had already visited the kids space and recommended a visit. It was fun seeing the kids exploring new ways of drawing, and unconventional ways of doing so as well. D was puzzled to say the least when he put on a crayon helmet and started drawing with his head. There were also crayon foot wear that you could put on your shoes and draw on the wall.

Best was all the massive crayons in all different shapes and sizes that all were easy to explore and draw with. It was easy to feel like a big kid yourself and go wild with the paper and crayon.

After a few hours of drawing and exploring the gallery everybody was exhausted from the input and after a lunch in the city we finally headed towards the train station and back home, tired but full of new impressions and experiences.
