Kids & Families

Spark_Lab is PICA’s education program, designed to foster creativity and innovation through hands on experience with contemporary art.

Through our public education program we provide a series of School Holiday and Weekend Workshops open to the public to allow kids of all ages to engage with the art and artists at PICA.

We also provide a range of free interactive activities tailored to each exhibition period in our reading room to provide time and space to consider the exhibitions at PICA and engage in a creative way with the ideas explored.

Current exhibitions:
