During the weekly art classes the children are introduced to a variety of media and techniques, both 2D and 3D. 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 to enable the children to convey their thoughts and feelings about their own work and the work of others.

Wednesdays: 4 – 5.30pm
Classes are limited to 10 students.
Cost: $180 / 10 week term. All materials are supplied.
