Art - Makers Space

Developed and facilitated by A8’s Art Therapist, Makers Space explores various creative and visual communication mediums and techniques in a nurturing and supportive small group environment (maximum four members), or individual 1-on-1 session.

Some of the endless benefits of creative expression and participating in weekly art classes includes:

  • Encourage children to access their creativity

  • Facilitate the exploration of feelings

  • Expand their current repertoire of ideas to develop self-directed activity at home

  • Improve focus and concentration

  • Increase self-esteem and confidence

  • Encourage interaction and communication

  • Provide access to a range of materials and creative activities to stimulate visual, aural and kinaesthetic senses

  • Create a safe environment for self-exploration and expression

  • Develop decision-making, problem-solving and fine-motor skills in a relaxed environment

When: Saturday 12pm, 1pm & 2pm

Where: A8 Hub Level 1, 34 Sherwood Road Toowong
