We offer art classes, art workshops and short art courses for children, teens and adults.
Beginners are welcome and we have offerings that are tailored specifically to the needs of the beginner. Advanced classes are also offered for students wishing to challenge themselves.
Classes and courses cover the use of a variety of materials such as pencil, charcoal, pastel, acrylics, oil paint, clay sculpture and pottery, papier mache and collage mixed media and lino prints.
Adult classes are small which allows for individualised projects and the emphasis is on artistic growth within a supportive environment. There is space in each class for the beginner as well as the advanced student. Students work at their own pace.
In the childrens classes a modular approach is used t explore a wide range of materials and approaches that can be used to make art. Students are encouraged to develop skills and thinking processes in both 2D and 3D projects.
