SCHOOL HOLIDAY CAMPS

Our camps explore a variety of visual art experiences including painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media and more to take children on an experiential journey where their own ideas are celebrated. Our program is open-ended and unstructured which helps children practice creativity and imagination while exploring the potential and language of art materials.

Date: Jan 9 and Jan 23


🔮 Create a Pokemon Poke ball (ages 8+)

🐲 Build a Dragon Sculpture (ages 8+)
Join us on this day to learn how to make a sculpture using the papier-mâché technique.

Time: 9:00 - 16:00
Date: Jan 16


👻 Invent A Fantasy Creature (ages 8+)
Using their imagination and illustration skills, the children will invent their own fantasy creatures taking inspiration from encyclopaedias on mythical creatures and fantasy folk. We will draw a scientific illustration of our fantasy creature using a range of drawing materials (pencils, watercolour), make a paper clay sculpture of it as well as write up its backstory practising our creative writing skills. We will learn how artists combine different animal features to create a fantasy creature and how they come up with backstories for their beasts.

Price: $160 (incl. GST)
Time: 9:00 - 16:00
Date: Jan 19



What’s included in the price:
All the materials the children will use during the day (We are very generous with art supplies and use materials of the highest quality only. Our students use rare art materials such as plaster, paper clay, craft glue, artist-quality acrylic paints and highest quality paper and canvas boards. All this is included in the price!) Two qualified art teachers on site if we are fully booked to ensure individual attention to each child enrolled. Using other studio materials during the day in between the art-making sessions – there is no TV watching at WonderLab with the children engaged in art-making the whole day (drawing with ink and soft pastels, painting with watercolour, modelling with clay and plasticine – our students bring home a lot of creations after the camps). We also pre-make a lot of custom-made spare parts for our camp creations to ensure children’s artworks look unique and elaborate.
