1. Youth Art Group

We are excited to announce a new after-school art group for young people aged 10-17. Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive space where young people can build confidence, self-esteem and resilience while creating art. Art can be a powerful tool to look after wellbeing and mental health. Across the term, we will explore a variety of art forms including painting, sketching, sculpture and cartooning. Whether you are a budding artist or just starting your artistic journey, there’s a place for you here.

Come along to make friends, have fun, and explore your creativity. This group is free of cost and is facilitated by the QPRC Community Team, with some workshops delivered by professional artists.

The Youth Art Group will kick off in Week 2 of Term 4, 2023.

  • Ages: 10 – 17 years old
  • Cost: Free
  • Location: Axis Youth Centre, Corner of Campbell Street and Park Street, Queanbeyan.
  • When: 3:15 – 5:30pm, Monday afternoons during school term
