CASULA POWERHOUSE ART ACTIVITIES

Our Public Programs and Education Team have prepared a range of activities that you and your young creatives can do in the safety and comfort of your own home, plus we also have some workshops available here at Casula Powerhouse for Term 4.

We know you are looking for activities for the kids that are fun and educational at the same time. Our usual school holiday workshops have been transformed into online video content for you to watch and play along with worksheets and engaging activities. We've got the activity sheets above the video content but please note not all worksheets have an accompanying video, we've noted in the description which ones do. So have some fun, let us know what you like, what you need, and what the kids like too.


We also have range of activities that will enable you to channel your creativity in Term 4. On advice from the NSW State Government and health officials, we have been able to re-open our workshops in real life. We have considered the capacity of each workshop to ensure that we adhere to social distancing rules (1.5 metres). Participants must continue to comply with the NSW Government’s social distancing and hygiene requirements.

There is something for everyone, including the grown-ups! Each activity has been designed to allow for exploration, creativity and thinking. These are not just art activities but opportunities to really let children lead the way through art. The creativity pack can be downloaded here
