FOR ADULTS AND KIDS
Our Public Programs and Education Team has designed a range of activities that will enable you to channel your creativity during the school term.
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.
Remember that you can use Creative Kids Vouchers to subsidise workshop fees. More details can be found here.

ONLINE CREATIVE CONNECTIONS
Online Creative Connections is an art workshop for those with anxiety, depression or mental health issues and is a space to connect online during lockdown. Facilitated by a qualified Art Therapist this will be a safe space to chat and work together.
Connect over Zoom while making masterpieces in the comfort of your own home.
This workshop requires participants to have access to their own materials and to choose an art project you would like to work on. Projects can be as simple as a pen and paper to draw, your latest knitting project or something you’ve always wanted to try making and creating with.
Join us to connect and enjoy art together.
PAINT WITH THE POWERHOUSE
Paint with the Powerhouse is an online art class for adults. While we are still subject to restrictions, we’ve decided to host our first class online, and we invite you to grab some wine, prepare a platter and get ready to paint! This workshop will guide you through the process with easy set-by-step instructions and the first artist we are taking inspiration from is Vincent Van Gogh.
Our instructor will take you through some of the defining features of this incredible artist’s work and you’ll get to create your own Spring masterpiece, inspired by Van Gogh’s techniques.
All materials will be supplied and once you have booked, we will post you the ‘Paint with Powerhouse pack’ which will include everything you’ll need: paints, paintbrushes, a canvas and an easel. All you will be required to do is set up your painting space and join us on the day.
This class runs for 2 hours and is suited for adults. Participants will receive a link to join the Zoom session the day prior. Please ensure you book with enough time for us to post the materials to you.
