Event description
Come and join us in one or all of these unique drawing workshops designed for parents and children.

About this Event

As far as the children are concerned they are having an hour filled with a story, some songs and lots of fun drawing with their parent alongside other parents and children.

And that is true, however it's a bit like sneaking the veggies into spaghetti bolognese, as the Squiggle Kids Workshops also:

  • explain the typical development of drawing skills in children and help parents identify activities and tools to engage children at different stages of development
  • give parents and carers tips and tools for engaging children in drawing activities, including engaging reluctant and disinterested drawers
  • give parents and carers ideas for problem shooting some common problems encountered when engaging children in drawing activities
  • encourage drawing as a shared activity
  • help parents and carers appreciate and engage with a child’s drawings (including all those squiggles!)

The informative workshops are presented by Melbourne mum and author of the baby + me book, Lauren Gardiner, and Debbie Isaac, a Melbourne-based paediatric occupational therapist (also a mum of three).

So what happens in a session?

Each session lasts an hour and includes

· Songs, including short introduction for parents

· Reading aloud a drawing related book,

· Parent and child group drawing activity

Towards the end of the activity, there will be an opportunity for parents to ask questions and for Debbie and Lauren to speak on a range of drawing related topics (developmental aspects of drawing, problem shooting particular issues that come up in drawing).

The series has been designed to last for 3 weeks and there will be a different activity each session. The price for your first session includes a show bag loaded with fabulous art supplies to allow the fun to continue at home.

You can buy tickets for each session individually or as a combined ticket (the best way to guarantee your places).

If you are bring more than one child we offer a reduced rate for additional siblings.
