There are no rules.That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules.That is what invention is about.

"Colour is a power which directly influences the soul." ~ Kandinsky
Art Taster Term Courses (running for 8 weeks per term) offer a variety of hands on experiences. Many of these experiences may be new, or at least be using mediums which your child has had little experience with! This is the best part! We are all learners, and learning together - while making a mess and having a good time.
Classes are limited (strictly 8 participants) to ensure individual, personalised attention and are suited to school aged learners from 6-16 years. The multi-aged nature of the group allows everyone to be a leader, a friend, a learner and an encourager. In my experience there are so many benefits to working with multi ages in small and supported settings, particularly when children share similar interests and passions.
Term programs are varied and exploratory in nature. They are loads of fun and may include the following;
*Clay and ceramics - hand building, glazing and firing (*included in EVERY term course)
*Epoxy Resin Art
*Sculpture - modroc, papier mache
*Mosaics - tiles and grouting
*Candle Making - beeswax, soy, container, rolled and drip candle making
*Printing - gel plates and screen printing
*Painting - acrylics, watercolours, gouche on canvas
*Modelling using various mediums (air drying clay, magiclay etc.)
