Mudgee Arts Precinct are inviting children aged 9–12 who are experiencing mild anxiety and their parents/caregivers, to take part in a calming and engaging eight-week art program at Mudgee Arts Precinct.
Engagement with the arts can help young people connect to their feelings, thoughts and imagination. It can build self-confidence and resilience, foster social connections and improve mental health and wellbeing.
This free program will provide a safe, structured space for young people and their parents/carers to engage with and respond creatively to curated artworks in a small group setting.
Led by Artist/Educator Michael Bourke, the program will be held over eight consecutive Saturdays starting Saturday 3 February 2024 between 10am and 12pm. A program for the children’s parents and caregivers will also run at the same time. All art materials, resources and morning tea will be provided.
The What’s On calendar covers arts and heritage events happening across the NSW Central West in the local government areas of Bathurst Region, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Region, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
