What is the Community Workshop Outreach Program
The Yarrawonga College P-12 Community Workshop has now established an Outreach Program as we are unable to operate as we normally would. The program offers a wide variety of projects and activities that students, volunteers and members of the wider community can do from home. We have three major project categories: “Magical Mystery Tour Around the World” Production, Bushfire Relief Projects and other Workshop in the home activities.
Our Production projects cover a wide range of areas such as: puppets, sets, props and costumes.
The theme of the production is to explore cultural diversity by looking at the impact we have on our planet and our native animals. With all the tragic events happening around the world, there is no better time to showcase cultures so that we can all reach an understanding and acceptance of our differences. To bring differences and tolerance into our lives, it is up to you and me to spread the message that “underneath everything, we are all the same.”
For our Bushfire Relief projects we have a number of students and volunteers creating masterpieces for our special art exhibition. A diverse range of art media will be used to depict our planet’s flora and fauna. The artworks will be appreciated for their beauty and emotional power, whilst capturing the fragility of the world in which we live. The artwork will send a message that everything is connected and our positive actions will ensure that our planet will continue to thrive. They will remind us that we need to nurture our culture, community and our earth. All artworks will be available to be purchased, with funds raised going to Moah’s Art Wildlife Shelter.
The Workshop has a wide variety of activities that can be created in your home. Some of the activities include: weaving, fishing lures, Lego, sewing and many more.
