    ‘The Castle of Tarragindi on Tour’ features activities developed by The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) Children’s Art Centre in collaboration with Australian artist Natalya Hughes.

    In her work, Hughes creates paintings, textiles, sculptures, and installations informed by decorative and ornamental traditions.

    In this free-entry creative program, artist Natalya Hughes invites children and families to explore the decorative art form of the ‘grotesque’ through various hands-on and drawing activities, including creating a hybrid creature using imagery designed by the artist.
