Pine Street Creative Arts Centre is the City of Sydney’s only dedicated, community focused arts facility, and has been in operation in its current form for approximately 15 years. The Centre aims to encourage participation in lifelong learning within a cultural and creative framework.
Artistic development is encouraged through all the Centre’s activities, including a diverse and dynamic range of arts workshops, exhibitions, community projects and events. These are designed to promote local arts and cultural activities, provide positive social outcomes and encourage local creative economies. The creative process is powerful – as well as learning to make art, the projects people work on at Pine Street can help them build self-confidence, a sense of achievement and community belonging.
The Centre offers a range of creative arts workshops for all sections of the community: children aged 5 – 15 years, youth aged 16 – 26 years and adults. The Centre also runs an Outreach program, providing creative and capacity-building opportunities to marginalised individuals and groups.
Term 1 2014 Workshops
Tuesday 28 January – Tuesday 1 April 2014
Please note that all adults Monday classes start a week later than other classes due to public holiday on Monday 27 January (Australia Day). Tuesday morning classes also start a week later due to a pupil free day on Tuesday 28 January, so we can accommodate Tuesday morning students with children at home that day.
Booking day for Term 1 was on Thursday 14 November 2013. There are still places available in some classes. Please ensure you use the current Term 1 2014 enrolment form below, not an earlier form that you may have used previously. Complete and save the booking form and email it to us as an attachment. Please retain it as a word document – do not save as a PDF or jpeg.
We collate applications as they come in, on a first received basis. We will notify you of your booking status as soon as reasonably possible. Please do not call the Centre to check, as our staff will not be able to confirm your booking until all forms have been collated.
Due to the popularity of our courses, there is a limit of one class per medium, per person on our adults program.
