Rainbows and Sparkles

An art group for preschoolers with an emphasis on parent/carer participation.

Children and adults have fun exploring creative activities together such as singing, circle time with songs and action rhymes,
parachute, dancing to music playing musical instruments and making art using a variety of media.

Classes are facilitated by Gill Cruikshank who ran this popular group for several years prior to building works. Gill also works with Dee Whittington and her ‘movement’ groups on creative support for performances.

For your first Rainbows and Sparkles we recommend a $10 trial. Call the Box office to make a booking!

Limited spaces available

Burrinja Arts Workshop


$50 per student

  –  It’s all about GROUT…

Let’s get messy with a grouting session!

Have you been putting off your grouting?
This session is the place to do it with a group of fellow mosaic enthusiasts.

It is finally time to grout those unfinished mosaic projects…

This workshop offered in Burrinja's Art Workshop space serves as a 3 hours window of GROUTING on a personal mosaic project!

Jessie Journoud-Ryan will set up the workshop specifically for a grouting session and will demonstrate, support and advise you with the grouting process.

You MUST provide your own grout, gloves and bring along your completed project, but other basic grouting tools will be available to you.

Book Online here, or contact the Box Office on 9754 8723

Classes are facilitated by Dee Whittington who has many years experience with children and youth of all ages in the areas of creative movement, drama and music, with fabulous outcomes for the participants including an end of year showcase.

Play Up at Burrinja (Ages 5-6 years)
The emphasis for this age group is on creative play and improvisation. Classes are designed to stimulate the imagination of young children, through participation in various drama, music and movement activities.
When: Wednesday 4-5pm.

Act Up at Burrinja (Ages 7-9 years) 
These fun filled classes are designed to encourage children to become confident in presenting their own ideas and to work together in a group. This is achieved through movement, poetry, songs, scripts and theatre games; providing safe, supported performance opportunities.
When: Wednesday 5-6pm.

Advance Troupe (By invitation only) 
This class is for students showing the commitment to work within certain guidelines enabling them to extend their drama experience and skills.  It will be a class requiring focus and dedication and within these guidelines each student should have a fully rounded drama experience, still full of creativity and enjoyment but supported by focused behaviour and extended by more advanced scripts, monologues & movement. 

When: Wednesdays 6:30-8.00pm
