Event Details


Screen Shot 2018-01-15 at 6.46.06 PM

Join Julie and Rachel for a hands on exploration of mathematics and art. We will examine 3-D and 2-D shapes, explore pattern and repetition as well as investigate the power of line. We will also look at and discuss some artworks that contain mathematical concepts.

Participants will build 3-D objects, draw using rulers and compasses, and have loads of fun working individually or with friends to create art with mathematical themes.

Some children may need support from a parent as there will be a variety of work stations set up around the room. There will also be some fine motor skills required in the creation of both the 3-D and 2-D shapes.  Each workstation will provide activities that your family might be inspired to continue playing with at home.

Cost: $16 for HEA members; $18 for non-members

All workshops will be held at Mid Mountains Neighbourhood Centre (MMNC) on Tuesdays from 10:30-11:30am. MMNC is a nut free venue.  All homeschooling families are welcome to meet for lunch afterwards, whether or not you are attending the workshops.  Living Learning activities are Home Education Association Inc. (HEA) Events.

Living Learning programs are pitched at a 5yrs and up age group as a loose guideline. This term we also have a program on offer for children working at High School level. Keep reading and scroll down to find details.

Please note it is an insurance requirement from HEA that parents are at the venue or provide written notice of their absence to the event organiser and have a designated “supervising carer” present for their children. When you are the “supervising carer” for another parent, please ensure you include the names of the children who are in your care when you sign the HEA sign on sheet.

Our workshops most often book out, so book in as soon as you can!
