TERM 1  


  TERM 3   TERM 4

"Getting Real"

These classes will explore the formal techniques that help with creating realistic artwork. We will look at perspective, tone, shadows, colour blending and how to use good quality materials and papers.

This term will suit children and teenagers who like to draw realistically and who like tidiness.

 "Getting Messy"

These classes will explore different messy mediums such as paint, watercolour, pastels, ink and charcoal.

This term will suit children and teenagers who like to cut loose and have fun, who enjoy the unexpected results of experimentation.

 "Getting Whimsical"

These classes will explore using the imagination to create fantastic scenes and characters. We will learn about designing cartoons and animations. We will experiment with technical mediums such as ink and markers.

This term will suit children and young adults with a vivid imagination who love to draw the same theme and create complex stories in their artwork.

"Getting Shape"

These classes explore working in three dimensions. We will create artworks using construction, texture and form.

This term will suit children and teenagers who like using glue and who enjoy the possibilities of found objects, recycling and craft materials.
