Student Operation Art Workshops

Operation Art offers a series of practical workshops presented by specialist visual arts tutors. These 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. Schools are not required to send a teacher to supervise their students.

Workshops cover a variety of different topic areas including drawing, painting, printing, mixed media and sculpture. Workshops run from 9:00 am - 2:30 pm. Students will participate in three visual arts activities during the day. All you need to bring is recess and lunch and a paint shirt to protect your clothing - equipment and materials are supplied and all works will be sent home with the students at the end of the workshop. Parents are invited to view the student's work at 2.30pm in a mini presentation.

Cost per student $50.60 (inc GST) 

Register as a School Contact Teacher

Bookings from parents can only be accepted once the school has registered a contact teacher. Following school contact teacher registration, we will email the teacher the parent information form for circulation.
