Saturday Art Club - Drop-in Classes (starts Feb 1)
Price:
$40 per class
✅  Saturday Classes 10.00-12.00_


Please note that we do not do step-by-step teacher-instructed artworks allowing children to 'think like real artists' and create their own individual artworks. In a safe and freindly environment even most shy and reserved children will have an opportunity to create and explore their artistic talent.

We celebrate children's uniqueness and do not compare children's results to each other or someone else's art works.

We do not produce identical perfect looking artworks on the easel - instead we learn to be creative and unique. As the artist and art teacher Hamish Betts argues: 'Every student should be creating their own art work. I never want students to create the same picture and I do not encourage copying. I celebrate what students can create and give them the choice to make work that is varied.'

We also do not introduce big artists and ask children to copy masters. We get children explore art materials and create first, and then when they are finished we might research a couple of masters and try to find which artist has a similar art style to what the children have created. We believe that this method gives children confidence in their own ability to create.

WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT US

We never miss a class! Three terms in, and Victoria keeps coming up with something new - offering always interesting yet age-appropriate activities most of us parents would prefer not to try at home with the kids. She clearly adores what she does and it shows.

What an amazing class. Victoria was brilliant, she had every child completely captivated for the entire hour. My daughter had so much fun painting, dancing, and lying on her tummy drawing with charcoal. What a great introduction to art.


My son comes home wanting to extend on class projects and create more art! He is always looking forward to the next class. I highly recommend these classes to anyone wanting their children to be inspired to think creatively, in a hands on learning environment while having so much fun.
