Operation Art student workshops

Kindergarten to Year 10

Students spend a whole day making, creating and learning new visual arts skills. Workshops cover a variety of different topic areas, including drawing, painting, printing, mixed media and sculpture.

Delivered by specialist visual arts teachers, these full-day workshops are designed to extend participants' skills and artmaking experiences beyond the classroom. Students who display a higher level of engagement in visual arts will benefit from these challenging opportunities.
