Classes

What We Do

We run a range of classes which are tailored to suit the individual based on skill, age and interest. Smaller groups allow us to individualise the lesson to suit the student.  We have a maximum of 10 students per session and stagger start and finish times for minimum disruption to students.

We cover a range of ability levels from beginners through to advanced in drawing, acrylic painting, oil painting and watercolour painting. A drawing student may also gain experience in charcoal, markers and colour through pencil, watercolour pencil and oil pastel depending on interest and skill levels.

Each student has their own program, goals and focus. They work independently in a group setting, which allows them to explore their materials to build confidence and skill in creating their projects.

Visual arts helps to; increase confidence and self esteem, initiate problem solving techniques, build communication skills, releases positive endorphins and aids in relaxation, plus more.  You don't need to be good at visual art to be able to express yourself.

Self expression helps us release emotions and promote strong mental health.  One on one or small group sessions can be arranged if required.

Class Information

Our classes are tailored to the student and our small group sessions allow us optimum time with the student. 

Our philosphy centres around teaching our students the skills to not only create their own visual art works but to help them problem solve and come up with their own solutions to issues that arise. We help the student fully understand the materials they use by exploration and experimentation as well as gaining an understanding of visual art terminology.
