Free art and craft activities

School holidays banner

Children from 4 years to 12 years will be getting creative at the Pine Rivers Art Gallery in Strathpine this school holidays. With so many different days of themed free self-paced activities to explore and take home to show their friends, there is sure to be something for every budding young artist.

All of our art activities are designed to entertain and stimulate the imagination with research showing that art activities promote problem solving, fine motor skills and creative thinking. Carers are welcome to join in. We suggest you allow at least 60 minutes to experience the activities, although many families stay longer.

The gallery is located next to Pine Rivers Park and within walking distance of Strathpine shopping centre and Strathpine train station.
