Zeitz MOCAA has a holiday line-up for kids, cool people and creatives. Here’s a selection of fun activities and exhibitions happening over the holiday period.

Little Ones at Zeitz MOCAA

If you haven’t booked yet for the Zeitz MOCAA children’s holiday workshops and storytelling sessions, there are still a few spots open this week.
Parents/ guardians can explore the museum at their leisure while their children get stuck into creating 2- and 3-dimensional visual art projects inspired by selected artworks in the museum. Using a variety of wet and dry mediums and techniques in painting, drawing, collage, construction, and printmaking, children will explore the creative possibilities of paper, fabric and recycled materials in a nurturing space.
