Summer Art Clubs

The Glucksman Summer Art Clubs are back! We are excited to be offering creative clubs for young people through July and August.


Led by experienced facilitators, children will undertake imaginative projects and create unique artworks when learning about painting, sculpture, printmaking, collage and drawing. Glucksman Art Clubs fuel children’s imaginations, develop their artistic skills and encourage their creativity. Each session is carefully designed to provide age-appropriate projects and are delivered in a friendly and positive environment.

A guardian guide on art club rules, procedures and policies will be made available to registered participants.

Art & Nature (5-8 years) Connect with nature through art in our fun hands-on summer camp for 5–8-year-olds. Under the guidance of our experienced facilitator, children will learn about texture, shape and colour as they explore mediums such as sculpture, painting, printmaking, photography and collage. This club will combine outdoor activities and walks in the beautiful university lower grounds with studio making sessions.

Imagine. Discover. Create (9-12 years) Discover exciting art making techniques and creative approaches in this summer art club. Working individually and collaboratively, children will develop their skills and gain confidence with materials . Led by our experienced facilitator, children will create unique artworks using drawing, collage, sculpture and printmaking that will go towards their own art exhibition at the Glucksman.
