School Holiday Program (8 - 12)

SPRING DATES: 25th September - 6th October

TIME: MORNING SESSION: 9:00am - 12:30pm / AFTERNOON SESSION: 1:30pm - 5:00pm


Welcome to the Art Encounters school holiday program for 8 - 12 year olds, one of the most popular art education holiday courses in Australia. Each session is a valuable learning experience in art that has been designed to leave participants with at least one new insight into drawing, painting or sculpting. We welcome children of all skill levels as we place importance not in talent, but in enthusiasm and passion. 

In each three and a half hour session, students complete one major project as well as a number of free drawings and studies. Please click on the arrow on the right hand side of each box for specific session descriptions. Parents are welcome to enrol children into as few or as many sessions as they like.

All Art Encounters tutors are practicing tertiary trained artists with Working with Children Checks and First Aid Certifications.

COST: $45 per session

MATERIALS: All materials are included in the session fee.
