Art Tours For Tots And Kids

Illham Gallery Malaysia

Awaken your child’s sense of awe and wonder through art as Ilham Gallery opens its doors, every month, to some of its youngest visitors during the Tours for Tots and Kids. Tours are specifically curated to give little ones special access to view and reflect on fine art. Too often, art experiences for young children only focus on the making of art. At Ilham, they aspire for their tours to be gentle first encounters for kids with various types of art, from paintings to sculptures. Through a parent-accompanied playdate-styled tour, kids are introduced to Malaysian contemporary artists and their works. How exciting! Kids engage, interact and interpret ideas as they walk about the gallery. Facilitators inspire conversations about art in fun ways that relate to your kids’ own unique experiences. A session ends with kids dabbling in art and craft to create their very own masterpieces. But do stick around after the session to explore the gallery’s lovely grounds which include a giant copper-clad sculpture – the first ever permanent public work by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei in Southeast Asia.

Why Little Steps Loves It:​

It’s a great way for families to admire closeup works of Malaysian contemporary artists.

Who It's Perfect For:

Tours are designed for different age groups - 3 to 5 year olds, 6 to 8 year olds and 9 to 12 year olds. Sign up for sessions at the gallery’s website.

What Else:​

Exhibitions change every 3-4 months and kids’ tours always tie in with the theme of the gallery’s most current exhibition.
