Do you have a tech-loving child who can work an iPad in their sleep? Or is gaming their passion? Perhaps they’re a born performer who makes all the world their stage? Then the Fremantle Arts Centre holiday program is definitely worth a look. As well as courses in all the traditional much-loved art forms like painting, drawing and pottery, you might not know that Fremantle Arts Centre’s program has a whole range of classes in film and digital art forms.
The animation studio is a big hit. Children learn how to use computers, video cameras, paper and clay to create their own sophisticated animated films. There are also courses in video game design. Kids learn the essentials of how to use Unity – an industry standard software program – to create their own dynamic 3D game.
For those who prefer to be in front of the camera, the film making classes are a must. Younger kids (5-8) can star in their own fairytale while older kids get a more in depth understanding on the different roles on a film set, in front and behind the camera, as they make their own TV commercial.
The Arts Centre’s fun, age-appropriate classes are taught by experienced artists and tutors who are great with children. With small class sizes, you can be confident your child will get lots of guidance, make friends and have lots of fun learning a new creative skill.
Fremantle Arts Centre’s kids’ courses run weekdays Tuesday 1 – Friday 11 Oct. Enrol at fac.org.au/courses/kids
