After School Art Classes – Term 4, 2019 with

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019, 4:00pm - 5:30pm


Wednesday, December 18th, 2019, 4:00pm - 5:30pm

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.
