Breakers Indoor Sports Stadium at Terrigal will hold workshops by Coast Aboriginal artist, Buddy King, during the second week of the school holidays.

The Buddy Loves Dot Art Cultural Workshop will provide children with a day of creative arts while increasing their knowledge about Aboriginal culture.

Creative Kids Vouchers can be used to cover the cost of the workshop, which will be held on July 8 and 9 at 9am-noon for 5-9 years and 1-4pm for 10+ years.

Activities throughout the day will include cooking damper, gathering items to use for artworks, creating paints out of natural products and painting.

The Sip and Dot Workshop will allow people aged 18 and over to create their own traditional Aboriginal art inspired masterpiece and will be held on July 9 from 6-10pm.

Buddy King is a proud Kamilaroi Yorta Yorta man now living on Darkinjung land.

He is a father, an artist, works in Child Protection and loves expressing his love of culture and land through art.

Buddy Loves Dot Art was born because of this passion.

He loves to share culture through art and wants to break the barriers between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people using his artworks.

Drawing inspiration from nature is a big feature in his artworks, and the sunrise over Wamberal Beach was used as inspiration for King to feature in a recent campaign with a national paint brand.
