Umbrella believes in the importance of fostering creativity and artistic talent at a young age and developing this into and throughout adulthood. Creative Kids is Umbrella’s program for children aged 3 to 11 years old. We encourage children to let their imaginations run wild and to experiment with a range of materials and techniques. Our workshops are facilitated by trained local artists with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise – from painters and illustrators to ceramicists and artisans. Our program includes paid and free classes and workshops.
Digital projects for kids:

Umbrella is proud to have Townsville Family Life join us in August 2020 as a community partner for our children’s activities produced in-house. Umbrella looks forward to presenting kids programs with Townsville Family Life soon.
