Kids’ Art Club – Term 4 Online

Kids’ Art Club returns to Thursdays online for Term 4, facilitated by local artist Mary T Nguyen.

In these exploratory weekly online workshops, kids will focus on creating their own artworks from home and having tonnes of fun along the way!

The first four weeks take inspiration from the 2021 Young Artist Prize themes of  ‘an environmentally friendly City’ with workshops guiding kids through the skills to create art at home that they can enter into the 2021 Blacktown City Young Artist Prize.
