Winter School Holidays | Weekdays 8-19 July 2024 | Now Enrolling

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.

Winter Holiday ceramics

Ceramic sculptures made in our holiday workshops will be ready 3-4 weeks after the holidays. Work needs to dry before bisque firing, then we glaze them before firing a second time. We will send an email letting you know when they are ready to collect.

Our school holiday art programs:

  • include a wide range of art forms including painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, 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)

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.
