Children Classes

Children's classes are held after school from 4.00pm to 5.45pm, Mon - Thur.

Under normal circumstances we take children from the age of six, however, under some conditions we will take younger students. e.g.. brothers or sisters of an older student, or a child that shows skills and enthusiasm well above average for their age. Every child is taught according to their age and skill levels. As well as basic pencil work we give the children a "taste" of the following...

  • Colour pencil drawing
  • Watercolour painting
  • Oil painting
  • Pastel painting
  • Collage and printing methods
  • Mixing media

Once we have found the medium that the student is most comfortable with, we will then concentrate with various methods and subjects using the chosen medium.

We try to make the classes fun and entertaining so as to not feel like "school", this outlook has proved successful as some of our students have been attending classes for years now. We are proud to have produced several winners in local school shows and even art scholarships to a highly rated private schools.

Children's classes can be joined at any time subject to available space. Each class will have a maximum of ten students. The cost of each class is $27.00 (Inc GST) for the one and three quarter hour period.
