If you’re looking for something creative to entertain the kids on the school holidays, head to Caloundra Regional Gallery for some seriously cool art fun with ArtsCool workshops being held on Monday, April 4 and Tuesday, April 5.

From making dream catchers and wall hangings to abstract drawing and 3D sculpture, there is something for everyone to enjoy, but places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.

Young artists (5-8 years) will love creating their own one-of-a-kind, beach-themed dream catcher or string mobile using specially collected pieces of driftwood, fish netting, shells, feathers and other safe beach litter (Monday, April 4) or experimenting with the scratch foam technique of printmaking (Tuesday, April 5).

The slightly older artists (9-12 years) can try their hand at abstract drawing. It’s a chance to look at things in new ways and be bold and expressive in their artwork (Monday, April 4). They can also explore various methods of construction to create two 3D sculptural and assemblage artworks using a range of natural items and recycled man-made materials (Tuesday, April 5).

Bookings and prepayment are essential so visit the gallery website, choose your workshop (or two!) and book online. Parents are required to fill out a consent form which can be done online or printed from the gallery website.
