Artistic Connection Opportunities These School Holidays


School holidays are a wonderful opportunity to slow down, relax and indulge our creative selves – and these winter holidays are no exception at Yarra Plenty Regional Library. In fact, our community is in for a real treat: at various branches across our library service, artists will be in residence for workshops in different art practices. However, if you miss out on a booking (and they are very popular), don’t feel you will be missing out altogether – our artists are hanging out all day. Come and ask questions, talk about their art, and see them in action.

For example:

  • Brett Cardwell will be at Whittlesea Library on Thursday 4 July from 11am onwards.
    He will be creating a mural!

  • Gurvinder Kaur will be at Mernda Library on Saturday 6 July from 10am—4pm.

  • Marc McBride will be at Mill Park Library on Thursday 11 July from 10am—3pm.

  • Judith Rossell will be at Mernda Library on Saturday 13 July from 10am—4pm. 

  • Jodi Wiley will be at Lalor Library on Tuesday 9 July from 10am—3pm. 

  • Emmy Webbers will be at Ivanhoe on Sunday 14 July from 10am—3pm. 

Want to go out ‘on the road’?

Join Annie Valentine at the Mobile Library on Wednesday 3 July and learn how to work with polymer clay. These pop-up workshops will be stopping by: St Andrews, Kangaroo Ground and Diamond Creek. Registrations are not necessary! So come along and be inspired! 

Looking for books to read as well?  

We’ve got you covered. Here is a comprehensive list of school holiday reads!

But we know that life happens (it is cold and flu time of year, after all) and sometimes we cannot leave home.
