Making Pictures is a fun introduction to art for kids ages 6 to 10 years. Children will be exposed to different styles of art, a colour explosion of paint and other mediums. The course topics can include kiwiana NZ, animals, birds and a few landscapes thrown in the mix. Our teacher, Amber 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.
