1: POP ART FACES // MONDAY 26 SEPTEMBER // 10:00AM-11:30AM // ALL AGES

Learning from the master of Pop Art, Andy Warhol, we will take pics and print images of our own faces on a range of plain and patterned papers, then paint, collage, draw and transform our own faces into a pop art inspired work of art, or two, or three! This is for kids that love making a mess, love bright colours and would like to experiment with a variety of mediums. IMAGINATION MANDATORY! With Claire Harris.

2: MINECRAFT LOVERS UNITE // MONDAY 26 SEPTEMBER // 12NOON-1:30PM // ALL AGES

CALLING ALL MINECRAFT FANS! This workshop is to give all those parents a break from the excited, constant and relentless Minecraft chatter (I have a 7 year old son, i get it) and pull all those kooky fans together with likeminded kids in this multi artform Minecraft inspired workshop. We will GEEK OUT big time over worlds, characters, talk strategy and draw/create our own Minecraft Character. THEN, we will work as a group to create a CREATE HUB SIZED Minecraft world out of recycled objects. Please NOTE: You wont go home with a high end work of art from this workshop, but rather, this is an opportunity for young people to come together and bond over their love of the game, and get messy using their BIG imaginations. With Claire Harris.

3: ACRYLIC PAINTING – WHO’S A PRETTY BIRD?  // TUESDAY 27 SEPTEMBER // 10:00AM-11:30AM // ALL AGES

In this workshop we will start from scratch to create a beautiful work on canvas, of a beautiful bird. We will have an array of images to choose from (Parrots! Cockatoos! Galahs! Emus!!) and will work together step by step from sketching out our design, and building up the layers of acrylic paint to create a textured, bright and wonderful bird painting. This is a great workshop for young people that want to learn how to build up an acrylic work on canvas, and take something beautiful home for their wall. With Claire Harris.

4: WATER COLOUR FOR KIDS // TUESDAY 27 SEPTEMBER // 12NOON-1:30PM // ALL AGES

What happens when you sprinkle salt on watercolour paint? Or scrunch up cling wrap? Or use candles, masking tape or oil pastels? In this workshop we will experiment with a stack of different ways to use water colour paints and get some super cool effects on paper. We will then work together to create an A4 watercolour artwork to frame and take home. With Claire Harris.

5: STUDIO TIME – KID’S ART CLUB // TUESDAY 27 SEPTEMBER // 2PM-3.30PM // ALL AGES

In this session we are opening up Create Hub for any young person to come and spend some time with us, in a non-structured way. The art room will be open, they will have free reign of art supplies, they can come with a project in mind, or we can work through some ideas with them. A time to chill out, let the creativity flow and have a great time. We will be on hand to offer advice, the music will be on and the snacks will be aplenty. A great way for young artists to feel free and experiment with a range of mediums. With Claire Harris.

6: STREET ART AND GRAFFITI // WEDNESDAY 28 SEPTEMBER // 10:00AM-11:30AM // AGE 10+

It would appear that the lovely Kate Bower has been having fun at home experimenting with Graffiti and Street Art (hopefully on paper!!) so these holidays we are bringing it to Create Hub! Fusing bright colours, paint pens and a variety of other mediums we will experiment with different street art techniques, and create some funky artworks on canvas to take home. This one is for the slightly older kids and will be an absolute BLAST! With Kate Bower.

7: ANIME AND MANGA EXPLORATION // THURSDAY 29 SEPTEMBER // 10:00AM-11:30AM // AGES 8+

Anime, Manga and Character design!

Come and join us to explore the hugely popular style of manga/anime – a Japanese illustration style often found in comics and graphic novels. Using simple steps we will learn how to draw make and female faces and how to give them classic manga expressions. Students will also learn how to develop their own classic and unique characters. This will be a fun, introductory class that will inspire student to further create their own awesome characters. With Kate Bower.
