Our after-school program will connect with your child’s individual learning style, using an interest-based approach that is proven to grow creative problem solving and lateral thinking across all disciplines of education. All materials will be supplied, and your child will engage in structured learning, as well as being encouraged to find their own style through experimentation. Not only will it help your child to think big, it will also be a space where their individuality is celebrated and the learning environment is focused on their well-being.


Key Learning Objectives: Meet the Materials

Explore foundational techniques in drawing, painting, print making, collage and fibre-art

Identify students area of interest, encouraging experimentation and individuality 

Present art making as a way to think differently across a range of learning areas


Workshops will be facilitated by Artist and Educators, Naomi Wild and Hester Lyon. Both Alex and Hester bring years of experience in art education and practice, assisting your child to develop their creative flare.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Gallery capital works and renovations, there will be no classes the week of 30 August 2021. Students will receive an art pack to take home. From 6 September 2021 onwards, arts/COOL will move to our secondary workshop space in Broken Hill's CBD.
