Storytime at Incinerator Gallery
Designed for children aged 2 to 5 with a carer
Introduce your 2+ pre-schooler to art with our early learning program Arty Tales.
Join our Barking Spider Visual Theatre artist through the Gallery to explore art, architecture and the garden in new and imaginative ways. Shared viewing inspires stories, songs and includes an age-appropriate (caregiver assisted) craft activity. Children and their carers gain confidence to enjoy encountering art together in a gallery setting.
We encourage you to dress your child for comfort and mess.
