Held every school holidays, the courses give children and teenagers aged five to 18 a chance to try their hand at artistic ventures, including animation, sewing, mosaics, papier-mache, pottery, clay, screen-printing and urban art.

Fremantle Arts Centre director Jim Cathcart said it was great to see children returning for multiple courses over the holidays.

“Many of our students come back term after term, with kids often moving from the younger group up to the older group as they grow up,” he said.

“Sometimes the kids want to do every class that a particular tutor takes or they just want to try everything from painting, mosaics, theatre, animation and more.

“Animation is always a favourite on the FAC kids’ calendar and this year we’ve also added a digital animation course.”
