1. Youth Art Group

Are you aged 7-17 and interested in art? The Youth Art Group offers 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. Through the Youth Art Group, 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.

Unfortunately we are not able to run our Youth art group program in Term 2 of 2024 due to staff shortages.  If you are interested in the program please email and we'll keep you informed about when the program restarts.
