School Holiday Program

Classes are held at our artKids Studio, Basement, North Canberra Baptist Hall, Turner PLUS a mini program at The Link, Ginninderry.

Our School Holiday programs are aimed at 5 - 14 year olds, however, we have come across some amazingly focused 4 year old children. If you have a 4 year old who is keen and able to focus, we will accept enrolment on the understanding that if we find they are not coping, you are able to collect them.

NEW! Three-morning sessions Realistic Drawing Skills for 9yrs+  Kids start to lose interest at this age as they move from imaginative to realistic drawing, but become frustrated at their attempts as they simply don't have the skills. Many kids stop drawing altogether. At artKids, we're on a mission to stop this! Each school holidays we are are running a three-morning Realistic Drawing Skills program for kids 9 yrs and older, with each session building on the previous one. See our program for more details.

Special Offer: Book in for the three sessions and only pay $180!

Don't forget our Art Gallery Visit excursion to the National Gallery of Australia! The kids loved the last school holiday trip to the Gallery - a chance to explore Visual Thinking Strategies as view artworks and learn about the artists who made them. There's time for some sketching too.


The Turner program runs both weeks and repeats the program - so kids don't miss out on the fun if you want to go away for a week!
