4A Kids





4A Kids connects kids with contemporary Asian and Asian Australian contemporary art, culture and ideas.

4A has commissioned contemporary artists to share new creative projects for you to try at home. Designed for 5-17 year olds but adaptable for all ages, the first 4A Kids Kit #1 features creative activities from Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Marikit Santiago, Rainbow Chan and Ida Lawrence. The second 4A Kids Kit #2 features even more fun activities from Amy Ge, Alana Hunt, Leyla Stevens and Louise Zhang. The third 4A Kids Kit #3, released in October 2020, features fun things to do from Nathan Beard, Freda Chiu and Shireen Taweel. The fourth 4A Kids Kit #4, released in July 2021, features zine making with Sweet and Sour Group. The fifth 4A Kids Kit #5, released in October 2021, features Kashif Nadim Chaudry‘s colourful, symmetrical patterns. Each activity has been created by the artist just for 4A Kids based on their own art and is perfect for at-home learning and fun.

If you would like to download the whole 4A Kids kit #1, #2, #3 or #4,  click through below – or scroll down to find each artist’s activity.
