Making Pictures afterschool art class Auckland

Making Pictures is a fun introduction to art for kids ages 6 to 12 years, where our teacher Siobhan will teach the basics of drawing and painting.

What happens in the class:
The children will use various mediums such as paints, pastels, dyes, graphite pencils and more.
Using a step by step process, kids will learn layout and composition principles.
They will be learning new techniques using paint brushes and sponges.
Our tutors are both supportive and encourage the students to put their own individual spin into their artwork.
Children usually complete 3 to 4 projects per terms, depending on the group’s advancement.

What this class provides:
From our Making Pictures class, kids will gain valuable skills to use in their artistic journey in a relaxed environment. Music is usually played in the background, kids get to draw and paint with other like-minded children and get inspiration from each other. They also get on-going mentorship for our friendly and experienced tutors.

What students say about Making Pictures:

Vanessa V. (December 2022)
Making Pictures’ at Uxbridge has been a fantastic term activity. I would recommend for any child with an interest in art. Highly engaging teacher who works closely with the students to help inspire them and teach them new art skills.


In Siobhan’s class, your child is likely to make whimsical themed creations in a delicate style. Think cute tigers, unicorn and dragons. Magical landscapes and imaginary themes. See Siobhan’s artworks.
