State Library of NSW

The State Library Creative Kids box is filled with activities inspired by the State Library’s collections to delight and inspire all curious and creative primary school aged children. From the moment it arrives on your doorstep, the activities inside will have you drawing, playing, reading, building, experimenting, constructing, crafting and writing. Best of all, this box contains plenty of ideas, instructions and resources to repeat and extend the activities for months to come. Order now.

MAMA Albury Autumn Art Camp

Enjoy a day of creative fun in MAMA Studio in the autumn school holidays!

Led by experienced art educators, kids will create artworks inspired by the Museum’s summer exhibitions and will be encouraged to try different materials and learn different methods of artmaking.

Bega Valley Regional Gallery

In this workshop kids can create an “exquisite corpse” (a game played by the surrealists), creating a figure using collaged images from magazines, books and a variety of papers. Kids will learn about ways to cut and layer different papers, image composition and how to use colour and texture to create an interesting artwork. Book now.

Peter Coombes at Parramatta Riverside Theatre

A musical tour down memory lane with Peter singing all his best-known songs. A concert for kids, parents who used to be kids and grandparents who originally bought the albums for the parents who used to be kids! A great big ‘feel good’, three generational sing along with Peter and six young backing singers, the Fabulous Combettes. Book now.
