As part of the major exhibition ‘Quilty’, Brisbane's Children's Art Centre presents 'Ben Quilty: Family Portrait'.
In this interactive exhibition, leading Australian artist Ben Quilty encourages children and families to explore the art of portraiture in an artist studio setting. The exhibition also stars Ben’s children – Joe and Olivia – who appear in a video on display, which takes children inside Ben’s studio in New South Wales and provides insights into his approach to making art.
As part of 'Family Portrait', you can draw a portrait of a family member or a friend following an instructional video with tips from Olivia, play with colour and distortion to create a digital self-portrait, and experience Ben’s work in a new way through painting replicas that you can touch.
