Maitland Libraries are keeping young people connected with community, culture and the arts through a series of new workshops beginning 22 April.
Youngsters of all experience levels will be able to get a taste of art, drama, creative writing and musical expression during the Thursday afternoon workshops.
Specialists from each discipline will teach techniques and tips to engage young people in creative thinking to produce their own art piece.
Coordinator community programs and collections Alison Harwood said the workshops were aimed at promoting friendship through creativity.
“We want to encourage and support creative expression in our community,” she said.
“This is a great opportunity for young people to discover writing, drawing and other forms of creativity and find friends with the same interest.”
A total of 10 workshops will take place at East Maitland Library, with children encouraged to sign up for as many as they wish.
The NSW Government’s $100 Creative Kids vouchers can be used for these workshops.
To use the voucher, enter the promo code ‘CREATIVE100’ at the beginning of the Eventbrite transaction and then enter the Creative Kids voucher number. Creative Kids vouchers are not transferable and cannot be redeemed for cash.
