Easter School Holidays | Weekdays 15-26 April 2024 | Launching Early March

Our regular School Holiday programs are always very popular, offering over 60 workshops for kids (aged 5+) and teens. Our program includes half-day, full-day and two-day workshops. It changes each school holiday period so there will always be a new workshop, new theme, new art form or technique to try.

Our school holiday art programs:

  • include a wide range of art forms including painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, Claymation, and more!
  • include all art materials and tuition in the workshop fee
  • offer 3-hour workshops with morning or afternoon slots for kids aged 5 and over (9.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-4.30pm)
  • offer one and two-day workshops for teens to develop skills and explore new mediums or techniques (10am-4pm)
  • include lunchtime supervision for kids staying the whole day at no extra charge

Note: Our goal is to run all the advertised workshops. However, we sometimes need change a workshop theme, age range or tutor due to insufficient enrolments or other circumstances, and occasionally cancel a workshop altogether. In such circumstances, any student enrolled in a cancelled class will be transferred to another suitable class in the same time and parents will be notified. If no alternative class is available at the same time, a credit or refund will be arranged.
