School Holiday Workshops: Superstars
Week One: 16—19 January 2024
Event Information

Footscray Community Arts is the place for creative kids these Summer holidays! Our popular School Holiday Arts Program returns with an incredible line-up of artists and activities for kids (6—12 years).

Week 1 is for all the young SUPERSTARS, it is our program that focuses on performing arts.

Join Opal and the Golden Scissor Puppet team for an exciting adventure spanning four unforgettable days! Get ready to learn the art of crafting your very own puppet.

Kids will explore a variety of hands-on activities, including puppet building and construction, the magic of painting, the thrill of brainstorming, the art of set and backdrop creation, and the joy of script writing and engaging in theatre games.

But that’s not all! After three days of puppet-making and bonding with new friends, brace yourself for a spectacular puppet show that kids will perform for an audience of parents and friends.

No prior art or theatre experience is required because Opal and the Golden Scissor Puppet team are here to guide you, boost your confidence, bring your unique ideas to life, and show you the power of collaboration in putting on a remarkable performance.

Suitable for kids 6-12 years.
