ART lovers sick of being cooped up at home will be able to visit some of Australia's most talented artists' studios thanks to digital technology.

The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) will present a live in-studio series with Australian artists and designers throughout June.

Participating artists and designers include artist Agatha Gothe-Snape, musician and artist Jon Campbell, furniture designer Mary Featherston and contemporary artist Yhonnie Scarce.

The visits are being streamed on Instagram Live and via the AGV's website.

The series will feature artists and designers who have been exhibited at the Gallery or whose work is featured in the NGV Collection, in-conversation with NGV curators.

NGV director Tony Ellwood said the gallery was fortunate to to be surrounded by a talented and diverse creative community.

"This series gives our audience an opportunity to connect with these artists and designers and hear their perspectives about their practice during this period of isolation," he said.

All in-studio visits will be able to be viewed any time on demand on the NGV's website after being live streamed.

The series has already commenced with an in-studio talk with Agatha Gothe-Snape and Jon Campbell.

Other studio visits will feature Darren Sylvester (June 17) and Christopher Boots (June 24).

Appearances are scheduled to be streamed from 6pm on each date, but times are subject to change. To watch live or on demand, click here.
