ILHAM Gallery

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Learning -

Lev­els 3 & 5, ILHAM Tower, 8 Jalan Bin­jai, KL (03 2181 3003/www. il­ham­gallery.com). ILHAM Gallery is do­ing a com­mend­able job run­ning ed­u­ca­tional and pub­lic pro­grammes to bridge the gap be­tween artists and au­di­ences. One such ini­tia­tive run by ILHAM is Tours for Tots, a gallery tour tai­lored es­pe­cially for fam­i­lies with young kids.

If art ap­pre­ci­a­tion lies close to your heart, Tour for Tots is the per­fect means to in­tro­duce the sub­ject to your chil­dren. The tour be­gins at 10.30am with a meet-and-greet ses­sion, dur­ing which time ev­ery­one trills a wel­come song to help break the ice. Each tour shines the spot­light on the cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tions on view and in­cludes fun arts and crafts to en­cour­age cre­ative par­tic­i­pa­tion. Af­ter view­ing Ai Wei­wei’s mon­u­ment ‘Div­ina Pro­por­tione’, for in­stance, the kids are prompted to cre­ate their own three-di­men­sional sculp­tures. Like­wise, a tour of a pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tion is capped with the chance to cre­ate your own self­por­traits. Such ac­tiv­i­ties cre­ate a deeper sense of aware­ness while prompt­ing crit­i­cal think­ing among bud­ding minds.

Be­fore call­ing it a day, don’t for­get to col­lect your Tours for Tots gift bag filled with crafty ma­te­ri­als, which will keep the cre­ative juices flow­ing long af­ter your gallery visit. Tue-Sat, 11am-7pm; Sun, 11am-5pm. Tours for Tots: RM15 per child (must be ac­com­pa­nied by a par­ent). Show up at 10am to reg­is­ter. Lim­ited to ten chil­dren per tour.
