Scitech’s Science Centre is reopening for the school holidays! Come say hello and spark your curiosity once again.

We highly encourage you to book online for priority entry to the Science Centre, in order to avoid crowds and queues at the ticketing desk.

4. July Holiday Art Camp in Victoria Park

Suitable for Ages 5 – 10

Every Day will include;

A fun art history lesson where children get to learn about old and new masters and create their own artworks using specific techniques.

Other Activities include (but are not limited to):

  • Printing
  • Model Making
  • Paper Making
  • Make your own Puppet and Theatre
  • Alcohol Ink Printing
  • Raised Salt Painting
  • Marbling
  • Portraits
  • Fun with Communal Painting (based on workshops by Herve Tullet)
  • Face Painting
  • String Art
  • Stained Glass Windows

There will be a creative corner where children can create their own imaginings from recycled treasure, an outdoor garden and play area where some of the day will be spent playing, building and inventing, and the day will be a mixture of structured activities and free time/play – so every child goes home completely happy, exhausted and full of new amazing skills after a day of fun and learning.

These workshops are about ‘process art’ – showing children new techniques and skills, rather than focusing on ‘perfect’ deliverable end products. There will be stuff the children can bring home, but it will be a range of crazy things, that hopefully from the initial class they can take even further at home and school. 🙂

******Healthy snacks will be provided for morning tea.

Each day will be different, with a mixture of art history and learning new arty techniques!
