Free Kids Art Program at West End with Creative Kids Brisbane
Creative Kids Brisbane’s West End studio at West Village Brisbane offers FREE daily week day art & craft activities to children of all ages and abilities. We are open from 9-11am Monday to Friday. The West Village precinct also offers 2 hours free parking, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, and beautiful outdoor spaces for your child to play in, and for parents to unwind in.
Each day they offer a different art activity, which means your children will never get bored with coming back to create something new and amazing. No bookings are required, and children of all ages are welcome.
They run our daily activities based around the idea of Process Art which focuses on children exploring the art materials on offer and enjoying the art making in their own way without being told to do it a certain way. The end result is the least important part of the art creation, and they encourage parents/guardians to bond and collaborate with their child through the art making.
Their aim is for children to most importantly have fun, ignite creativity and to engage children and adults in art and the enjoyment of making something with their hands. Owner of Creative Kids Brisbane, Liz Austin-Glen says the aim is to give Brisbane kids a place to play, with stimulating, enjoyable activities – clay modelling, painting, and print making among the offerings. Their safe, cool, open-air environment allows the kids and parents to focus on learning new skills and having fun, while they look after all of the cleaning up.
Themed Art Days
To keep things interesting, Creative Kids Brisbane have an art theme for each day of the week. As long as your little one can pick up, hold and give the art activity a go they encourage any aged child to come along, experience, play and enjoy the art materials they have on offer.
