New Year – New work group? Old group wanting new ideas? Let us offer a creative solution!
If you are looking for a fun way to get the group working together, why not organise a Working Art experience and get those creative juices flowing?
We can bring the material to you at work or you can bring your group to Finite Gallery. Either way you can enjoy a fun session to create an artwork, or complete creative challenges designed to stimulate the creative ‘Right Side’ of the brain.

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
Wednesdays: 4 – 5.30pm
Classes are limited to 10 students.
Cost: $180 / 10 week term. All materials are supplied.
Did you Know that Finite Gallery also holds Arty Parties for all ages?
Not Arty? No worries! You will be given gentle tuition by an experienced artist so that everyone goes home with a result.
We provide all the art materials – you bring along your chosen food and beverages and a sense of adventure.
A great way to celebrate a Hen’s Night, Birthday, Retirement, or just fun get-together with friends or work colleagues.
Call Leslie to discuss your requirements.
