A COMBINATION of artistic projects and activities - what more could your kids want on a Saturday.

The Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum is excited to present the free Kids' APT7 on Tour tomorrow, starting at 10.30am.

Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) acting director Suhanya Raffel said Kids' APT7 on Tour, part of the gallery's flagship exhibition, The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, will be held at a record 75 venues throughout regional and remote Queensland this year.

"This exciting holiday program of artist projects and activities has been developed by QAGOMA's Children's Art Centre in collaboration with APT7 artists," Ms Raffel said.

"The projects include a multimedia interactive that allows users to reveal information from a concealed image via screens of dots, a recipe shared by a Malaysian artist, a drawing activity using Farsi script, a mask-making project, and a short film in which lights and appliances come to life at night to hold parties."
