Tuggeranong Arts Centre’s April school-holiday programs give children a chance to show off their creativity. Guided by a team of professional artists, musicians, dancers, and actors, the one-day Art and Action program is an action-packed visual and performing arts school holiday explosion of creative joy. Everyone will start the day playing theatre sports and other drama games before breaking into smaller classes based on age. During the art class participants will be introduced to gelli print, using acrylic paints to build up layers of colour using materials such as lace and leaves to create amazing artworks that are theirs to keep at the end of the day! Fresh Funk dance tutors will introduce young ones to Street-funk dance, giving participants the opportunity to learn a dance routine and have fun exploring this popular style of dance. After lunch, musicians Katie and Jess Cole will lead high-energy music sessions where everyone gets involved, in fun collaborative music making.
