After School Art Classes are held every week during school terms.
During the weekly art classes the children are introduced to a variety of media and techniques including painting, drawing, print making, sculpture and clay. By providing them with knowledge of materials and techniques, they are more able to make choices in ways to express their own creative ideas.
The language of art is also introduced through looking at work in the gallery and in the gallery library. By talking about styles, techniques and subject matter, the children are better able to convey their thoughts and feelings about their own work and the work of others.
Tuesdays: 4 – 5.30pm TERM 2: Beginning 26th April
Wednesdays: 4 – 5.30pm TERM 2: Beginning 27th April
Classes are limited to 12 students.
Class fees are $200 for 10 weeks which includes all materials.
A deposit of $40 will secure a place. You can use your Creative Kids Vouchers towards the balance. Bookings are now being taken.

Rachel Milne has recently won the Muswellbrook Art Prize with her detailed painting of The Creator Incubator artspace. Painted on site, the work demonstrates Rachel’s skill in portraying the details of light, colour and space.
Finite Gallery is extremely fortunate to have Rachel continuing to tutor her classes in Observational Painting at Finite Gallery each Friday.
Rachel will guide the class in ways to observe what is before them, and how to translate their observations in paint. These classes will be a combination of structured tuition, and participant lead exploration.
Participants will need to bring their own paints (oil or acrylic), medium, brushes and surfaces (canvas, paper, board etc) Easels and glass palettes will be provided.
Cost: $500/ 10 weeks (or $60/week casual if there is a vacancy) includes morning tea.
Booking is essential as class numbers are strictly limited.

Spend the day learning the coiling technique of basketry using mixed fibres to create visually stunning baskets. Discover the joy of the basketry weaving process. For many basketry weaving is all about the process – a very soothing repetitive process that provides for a calming and meditative experience. Students will also be rewarded by discovering and sharing the delight resulting from creating with other like minded people.
This workshop is suitable for the beginner and an excellent way to explore and extend your own creativity. Trudi will guide you through each step in a relaxed and friendly environment so that each person will take home their own unique and gorgeous basket.
Morning tea is provided, but please bring your lunch (or you can purchase from the nearby café or take-away)
Classes are kept small to allow for optimum individual learning and flexible teaching, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
Cost: $110 All materials included.
