Are you looking for things to do with kids on the Mornington Peninsula?
Drop in to the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery and pick up a copy of our ‘MY MPRG’ kids activity booklet. The booklet was designed by Melbourne artist, designer and illustrator Beci Orpin.
This free resource will be available to all children visiting the gallery to compliment their experience. The engaging activity book not only encourages creativity, but also draws from the curriculum to harness a range of skills including mindfulness, visualisation, comprehension and comparison.
Included within the booklet is a fold-out poster, which invites children to seek inspiration from artworks in the MPRG collection to curate their own gallery exhibition. And tell the kids to scratch and sniff the front cover!
Beci Orpin is known for her geometric designs and playful use of colour, Beci’s inimitable style is instantly recognisable. She is the author of three previous books, Find and Keep, Home, and Make and Do. Beci is specifically skilled at designing content for young audiences, having worked with a variety of leading cultural institutions including the National Gallery of Victoria, the State Library of Victoria and the Jewish Museum of Australia. The booklet is supported by a grant from Vic Health.
