Art workshops for young people

Expressions of Interest are now open for youth-oriented art workshops in Chigwell.

Crewative Arts Connect (CAC), run by Bucaan Community House (BCH) in Chigwell is looking for expressions of interest for its 2024 art workshops.

The free workshops are for 10-year-olds to 16-year-olds and occur twice a week at the Bucaan Community House.

CAC Facilitator Joel Imber said that BHC found a lack of affordable activities for young people in the Chigwell area.

“As a result, these young people were left without a place to belong or to access support,” he said.

CAC won a grant from the Tasmanian Community Fund (TCF), allowing it to run these free art workshops in 2024.

“It is important that the fund is able to meet the needs of communities, especially when it comes to removing barriers to education,” TCF Chair Sally Darke said.

“The Crewative Arts Connect program is a great way for young people in the Chigwell area to connect and be supported while exploring their creative talents.”

The students work in multiple mediums, including t-shirt printing, cartooning, digital art and photography.

“The special things about Crewative Arts Connect are the friendships that are made and that we can all have fun and connect through creativity,” Joel said.
