Archibald Prize - Children's Trail brochure

Do you like to draw?

Then it's time Mum or Dad or whoever looks after you took you to see the Archibald Prize!

One of the good things about this show is that when you go to see it, they'll give you this little brochure. It’s called the Children’s Trail.

Inside the brochure are lots of spaces to draw. You can follow the instructions or copy from one of the paintings hanging on the wall—you can even draw your favourite animal and stuff like that.

 

On our brochure we drew a dog made of socks and tennis balls because that's what our dog eats.

The brochure folds out which is really good because you can keep your drawing private by folding it over to the next page. When you take it home you can colour it in or hang it up. Because it’s small it’s easy to carry around the art gallery until you find your favourite painting. The people at the art gallery will give you a pencil to draw with.

Our favourite painting in this year's Archibald exhibition is the man made of fruit. It’s by Carlo Pagoda and it’s a painting of his Dad made of fruit and vegetables because he really likes to garden and grow things. His Dad is 97 years old so Carlo has painted him all bent over with really skinny legs!
