Creative Kids: Summer Art Sessions (aged 6-10 years)

Creative Kids - Summer Art Sessions

Looking for something special to enjoy with your child this summer?

Creative Kids: Summer Art Sessions take place throughout December 2017 and January 2018 and are designed to give you and your child a fun and interactive bonding experience.

Every Monday and Friday, we have three classes that have been tailored to suit different age ranges:

9am - 10am | Parents with children aged 0-2 years

10.15am - 11.15am | Parents with children aged 3-5 years

11.30am - 12.30pm | Parents with children aged 6-10 years

With games to play and art activities to create, you and your child will get to make an art and craft project together and listen to a song or story that ties in with the project.

Every week, there will be a different activity to make and a new story to hear. You could be making a Christmas decoration, a boat, an animal flip-book, a pirate hat or a space buggy! The possibilities are endless but all of them are fun!

Where: Rockhampton Art Gallery, Beatrice Hutton Room

Parking: Victoria Parade or Bolsover Car Park behind the Gallery
