For the first time, Fremantle Arts Centre presents a contemporary art exhibition specifically for kids. Animaze is about amazing animals of all sorts, where kids can wander and explore the wonderful world of animals and art.

With the work of more than 40 artists, specially designed play spaces, animal story readings and hands-on kids’ workshops, Animaze is a full-on animal art safari for kids and families.

Drop in and watch artist Ross Potter working on his huge, life-size drawing of every kid’s favourite elephant, Tricia from the Perth Zoo.

With prints, paintings, sculpture, crochet, robotics, aquatic critters, snakes, bears, bats and budgies Animaze: Amazing Animals for Kids has it all.
