Open Studio

Lucy resizedYOUTH ART OPEN STUDIO 2020  

When: Every Wednesday afternoon after school. 3.30 pm to 4.30 pm
Cost: $2 each week
Ages: 6 to 14 years (parent/guardian are required to stay with child).  Younger children need to be very motivated to learn new skills and have a genuine love of art. Children aged 6 and 7 must have an adult to sit with them to keep them focused on the activity.


We prefer that children attend every class so that we can work on developing their skills and opportunities to express ideas. We do, however, understand if other commitments mean they have to skip a week or two. Let us know in advance if your child cannot attend so we don't prepare materials for them.

"Wonderful Watercolour"

These classes will use one of the world’s most favourite art materials WATERCOLOUR. We will look at many different techniques and experiment with mixing media. We will also have a special guest artist to share their techniques with us.

"Super Realism"

These lessons are some of our most challenging and successful with our young artists. We share clever techniques to create realistic drawings.

Pastels are colourful and a lot of fun to use. We will create some stunning artworks in these classes where things can get a bit messy.

We would love to exand the program to reach more famillies and have staff willing to work additional hours to meet the demand but we lack funds.  Support of $4000 a year would help us reach double the number of students in a year.
