The most action-packed school holiday workshop program in the Inner West!

Our original and most popular school holiday workshop program for primary school aged kids.

In 4 action-packed days, students will shake off the holiday boredom in energetic dance classes, make their mark on the studio walls with splashes of colourful paint, and really soar as they learn to fly on the flying trapeze.

They’ll reach new heights as they scale the walls of the rock-climbing gym, find their inner strength in a self-defense class with a twist, and step into the spotlight in confidence-boosting drama games.

Find out why our workshop students leave happy and exhausted, and why they can’t wait to come back the next morning!

school holiday workshops with a twist!

Soccer for 4 days straight? Fielding cricket balls in the sun for 8 hours? Being stuck in the same room for the whole workshop?

While that might be fine for some, we believe that variety makes for a whole lot of fun! We’ve created an original program that allows kids to try new things, learn new skills, get moving, and unleash their creativity across a massive range of activities.

Made with kids in mind, you can see from the size of the list below that our school holiday workshop is the most fun-filled program available!

Note: Our Active Arts Holiday Workshops are designed as a comprehensive 4-day program. While we do our best to ensure students who are doing just 1-3 days can do the activities they are most keen on, this isn’t always possible as the workshop is scheduled with 4-day attendance in mind.
