The concept of Pastello designed for the National Gallery of Victoria, is at its new edition with a new design and look for Harbour City. The installation shifts perceptions and expectations about traditional materiality, media and the act of drawing itself.
It is active, colourful, inspiring and fun. The objective of the space is to ask children to break out of their comfort zone and to become active protagonists in the physical act of drawing. Children are prompted to draw in odd and quirky ways; through sport, performance and random bodily expression, using melted oil pastels as re-imagined drawing contraptions.
