Scribbles and Giggles at Sunraysia Arts and Learning

Kate will be running Scribbles and Giggles at Sunraysia Arts and Learning, a six-week program for pre-preschoolers and their grown-ups.
Children learn by watching and interacting with their parents and caregivers. In this program, we will explore ways in which you can connect with your own inner artist while enjoying making art with your child.
These sessions will be run in Merbein at Sunraysia Arts and Learning, 198 Third St Merbein.

Friday 17th May till Friday 28th June at 9.30-10.15 am.
Cost $165 for the six weeks.

At the end of the session grown-ups will be invited in for a special viewing and a discussion of the art the kids have made that day.
