House of Cards, Sunday 4 May
Tread lightly families; there is a house of cards in the Art Gallery. Join the START team as we introduce you to the work of Dark Heart artist Tony Albert and help you cut, fold and shape your own house of cards in response.

Lace It Up, Sunday 1 June
Children will be lacing up this START day looking at the bobbin and needle lace work on display. Join the START Team as we let you loose weaving and looping your own threaded patterns.
This month is also your first chance to make a work of art for the START Art Prize. Make a work with as much detail as you can and leave it with the START Team. Entries will be on display at the August START day.

Supported by the Balnaves Foundation, START is the Art Gallery's monthly children's program of activities. Suitable for ages 5 - 10 years. No bookings necessary.
Location: Meet in the Santos Atrium
