October School Holiday Workshops

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.
