Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said Camden Swirls was a great way for young residents to unleash their creative side.
“Whether it’s something they’re already interested in or maybe it’s something they’d like to explore a little more, getting our kids involved in creative activities can have so many benefits,” Cr Fedeli said.
“It’s a great way for them to unwind and bring about a positive mindset, connect with peers across the Camden area and, who knows, we might see the start of an acclaimed artist in our midst!”
