Artica is an interactive creative space for all ages. Look at huge painting reproductions on the walls, sit in front of a mirror and draw a self portrait, create on a computer drawing program, "build" a house with the assistance of a paper model or by usings colorful blocks, image a new you when you decorate a reflection of your face with glasses, moustaches or other interesting features, or dive into one of the many other tabletop activities in the space.
