We invite children and teens to step into a world of creativity with our School Holiday Workshops. These workshops which are held across our studios in Hawthorn and Armadale, include various interests and specialisations, ensuring every participant finds their niche in our vibrant artistic community.

The workshops are led by our team of seasoned artists and educators, with our studios providing an enriching environment where young artists can flourish. Our aim is to not only introduce participants to various art forms but also to foster a deep appreciation for creativity and artistic practice.

From painting and watercolour to Manga and mixed media, we cater to a spectrum of interests. Our instructors are passionate about cultivating creativity, encouraging experimentation, and instilling confidence in every participant. As art practice also facilities problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration, we believe in the power of art to transcend boundaries, unlock hidden potential, and ignite a lifelong passion.

Let this school break be a time of not just relaxation but also of exploration and growth.
