Stuarts Point Art House hosts successful holiday workshops

Hand percussion resonates well with the little ones.

DURING the recent school break, holiday makers and local children were once again enjoying two weeks of an ever growing selection of creative art and craft workshops offered by a range of dedicated practitioners.

The 2024 April Kids Holiday Programs alternated between the regular venue, the All Saints Anglican Church, and the Yarrahapinni Community House, both situated on Ocean Avenue in Stuarts Point.
