Toddl’ Art – Term 3
Immerse your little mischief maker and explore a visual arts theme each week.
Toddl’ Art is a series of visual arts exploration sessions designed to encourage free participation through traditional and non-traditional art mediums always focusing on the process.
When children are encouraged to explore art ideas they test endless possibilities and work through challenges. Finding solutions through creative practices allows children to take responsibility of their choices but most importantly teaches them that there are endless possibilities.
FCAC’s Toddl’ Art sessions will offer a drawing/painting/collage circuit where children are encouraged to work collaboratively on different surfaces. Each week will be driven by a specific theme that will trigger the children’s work. At the end of each session the child /carer are invited to select a fragment of the created work to take home.
Come along, bring your painting clothes and have fun. Drop in casual or purchase your term pass to ensure participation.
Note: carer’s participation is expected.

AGES: 2-5 years
COST: $20 per session ($5 per extra child in family)
