October School Holiday Workshops
Penrith Regional Gallery

These school holidays from Wednesday 30 Sep to Thursday 8 October Penrith Regional Gallery will host art making workshops for kids that explore a wide range of art making techniques and styles. Workshops run for two hours from 10am to 12noon and cost $30 each with a special sibling discount of $20 for any additional siblings attending the class.

During each workshop kids will be able to experiment with different types of painting, sculpture, charcoal and chalk drawing as well as digital prints and portraits. All workshops will be capped at 12 participants maximum due to Covid19 Safety restrictions, so get in fast to secure your spot! Workshops will be socially distanced with extra sanitation implemented throughout to keep all participants safe and comfortable.
