PARENTS of primary school children are turning to after-school programs to supplement the types of creative and artistic learning often not adequately incorporated into the syllabus.

Mother-of-two Corina Slack said creative, term-based workshops like Meet Make Create were providing valuable life skills which extended beyond the classroom.

"I've always felt that the current curriculum is a little stretched and unfortunately doesn't have much allocated time for arts and crafts within the school day," she said.

"I'd love to say that we factor in a heap of art activities at home, but it's not always the case, so to know that Isla is getting a good designated creative dose every week is great."

In addition to boosting her daughter's confidence, Ms Slack said it was beneficial for children to see that art "didn't have to be perfect".

Meet Make Create after-school workshops are held in Bangalow, Mullumbimby and Byron Bay. Call 0422 158 356 or visit www.meetmakecreate. com.au. -Veda Dante
