This Drawing and Painting class is the step up from our Making Pictures class.
It is designed to take our young artists to the next level and help them develop their own style. Amber puts focus on teaching new drawing techniques, composition and layout to make great art.


What happens in the class:

The children will continue to use various mediums such as paints, pastels, dyes, graphite pencils and more. They will create artworks of various sizes too.
In this class children will experiment with new fun painting techniques.
Using a step by step process, the tutor will guide children through various projects during the term. They usually complete 3 to 4 projects per terms, depending on the group’s advancement.
Our tutors are both supportive and encourage the students to put their own individual spin into their artwork.
This course is all about getting the child to explore and giving them the confidence to develop their own style.


What this class provides:

From our Drawing and Painting class, kids will gain confidence in their artistic journey in a relaxed environment. The tutors play music in the background, kids get to draw and paint with other like-minded children and get inspiration from each other. Conversations are encouraged and the course is a solid base for College Art. They also get on-going mentorship from our friendly and experienced tutors.


What to bring?

Bringing an art shirt is recommended.
All other materials are included in this class.


Who is this class suited for?

This art class is suitable for children between 8 and 12 years old who may have attended Making Pictures in the past (although not compulsory).
Please do not register children under the age of 8 in this class.

This is the ideal class to transition into the next level College Art Station for ages 13-17 years.
