How do we know what dinosaurs looked like? In this exciting workshop, children will combine scientific evidence with their imagination and artistic prowess to illustrate dinosaur discoveries from Australia and around the world.
Led by Celia Curtis, a successful palaeo-artist and scientific illustrator with a degree in Visual Arts from the University of South Australia, these workshops merge art and science, just as palaeo-artists do in their professional work. Unleash your child's creativity whilst they develop a deeper understanding of the magnificent creatures that once roamed the Earth.
From Saturday 1 July 2023, parents who did not redeem their previous $100 Creative Kids Vouchers are eligible for $50 vouchers.
If using a Creative Kids Voucher, please choose your course carefully as once your voucher has been redeemed the value cannot be recovered if your child, for any reason, does not participate in the course.

Celia Curtis is a multidisciplinary artist. She is an experienced scenic painter, maker and a published scientific illustrator. She first worked as a scenic painter for Erth Visual & Physical in 2003, moving on to numerous other theatres and companies including The Opera House. After ten years of prolific work in theatre, TV, illustration and rock band White Knuckle Fever, she returned to Erth in 2013 where she continues to work full time as head of the painting department.
Celia also completed an artist residency at the Australian National Insect Collection in 2016, in the Lepidoptera section.
