Special Edition ARTplay
– Teena’s Bathtime

Special Edition ARTplay: Teena’s Bathtime

Celebrate the launch of the brand new Bella Room commission!

Sydney-based artist David Capra invites us to join him in giving Teena his sausage dog a bath. Because Teena doesn’t like baths, we are encouraged to help her through the process, using lullabies, storytelling and cuddles! Have fun engaging with exhibition related activities and meeting other like-minded families throughout the morning!

Wed 24 June, 10am – 12 noon
Children under 5 and their grown ups
National Centre for Creative Learning
Drop in, we welcome a donation of $5 per family!
