Childrens Workshops For Recovery

Montague Art & Craft Society (MACS) is thrilled to announce they are offering a free children’s holiday arts program during January 2021. This program, named “The Bush Telegraph”, is proudly sponsored by a Coordinare Bushfire Recovery Community Grant.

These free workshops will be offered to children from bush fire affected households from Bermagui to Nerrigundah.

Workshops include Steampunk Art, Drama, Posters, Net & Fabric Art, and Crayon & Watercolour Art.

Workshop Co-ordinator for MACS Jude Thompson said “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to offer these free art workshops to the local children. It will allow them to use art as a creative expression and explore their own feelings about the bushfires.”

Classes are limited to 12 participants per workshop. Bookings are essential and enrolment forms can be picked up from the Narooma Visitor Centre or downloaded from the MACS website. There are some age restrictions, so read the enrolment form along with details on times and dates for each class.

Enrolments need to be submitted no later than 29 December.
