Arts Alive Visual Arts Workshops

Arts Alive Visual Arts Workshops provide an opportunity for public school students in Years 5 and 6 to be involved in a engaging, challenging and stimulating visual arts program. Tuition is provided to students by both professional artists and school teachers with specialised skills. 

Workshops focus on developing knowledge, understanding and skills in the making of artworks and the exploration of a variety of media, techniques and tools including painting, drawing, mixed media, sculpture and printmaking. Schools are invited to nominate students who demonstrate a high level of skill and interest in the visual arts.

The operation of this program is contingent on advice provided by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with NSW Health. All activities will adhere to the DoE COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.
