SCHOOL HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS

School Holidays here at Casula Powerhouse are a place for experimentation, exploration, and curiosity. With a team of arts educators experienced in workshop facilitation and learning, children get to experience the best of Casula Powerhouse’s programs, allowing them to be inspired, creative, and imaginative during the holiday season.

On advice from the NSW State Government and health officials, we have reduced each workshop's capacity to ensure that we adhere to social distancing rules. Participants must continue to comply with the NSW Government’s social distancing and hygiene requirements.
