The Shepparton Art Museum has announced the return of its school holiday programme, which will run from September 19-30.

Spring Camp’s arts and crafts program has been designed to meet the needs of children of all ages and abilities. It will cover several artistic mediums and incorporate a range of both new and familiar materials and practices.

Organizers hope the program will encourage young people of all ages to slow down, take a closer look and get creative outside of school time.

Children ages 5 to 15 are welcome, with this year’s program including lessons in creating wearable art, pottery and kaleidoscope making, plus a scavenger hunt.

Gabriella Calandro, SAM Engagement Manager, believes the camp will give children the confidence to engage more in art projects at home.

“(The) SAM Spring Camp provides a space for kids to have fun, learn new skills and make friends while exploring their creative side,” she said.

In related news, SAM will also welcome Dr Kathryn Hendy-Ekers (Course Manager – Visual Arts, Communication, Design and Media, Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority), who will be visiting Shepparton this holiday to provide an opportunity for professional development. for teachers of VCE studio arts and visual arts.

The tour will give teachers the opportunity to explore new subjects being introduced in VCE visual arts and methods of integrating these subjects into classroom learning.

Reservations for SAM Spring Camp and Dr. Hendy-Ekers’ visit are essential. Some of the camp programs are free; however, others will incur a small cost.
