Fill your school holidays with extreme arts!
We’re jumping on board with the Footscray Community Arts Centre’s April school holiday program, where children aged 6 –12 years can create and collaborate alongside outstanding artists from the community to learn new skills, make new friends and have a whole lotta fun.
Younger children (6 – 9yrs) will partake in two workshops per day and the older children (10 – 12yrs) participate in one day intensives. The workshop program is delivered 10am-3pm and before/after care is available too (8:30am – 5pm).
