Details

Join an 8-week arts engagement program for young people, aged 9-12, with mild anxiety. Parents/carers also join in and support.


Engagement with the arts can help young people connect to their feelings, thoughts, and imagination. It can build self-confidence and resilience, foster social connections, and improve mental health and wellbeing.

This free program will provide a safe, structured space for young people and their parents/carers to engage with and respond creatively to curated artworks in a small group setting.

Led by Shoalhaven Regional Gallery educators, the program will be held over eight weeks starting Saturday 10 February between 10 am and 12 pm, until Saturday 6 April. The program will break Saturday 30 March for Easter Saturday. A program for the children’s parents and caregivers will also run at the same time. All art materials, resources, and morning tea will be provided.

Culture Dose for Kids is part of a research study program in collaboration between the Art Gallery of NSW and the Black Dog Institute and is funded by the Jibb Foundation.

Important information:

  • The program starts Saturday 10 February until Saturday 6 April (no session on Saturday 30 March). Each week is 10 am - 12 pm.
