AFTER-SCHOOL ART CLASSES

ART CLASSES FOR AGES 6-13

Welcome to the Studio!

 

We believe that all young people should have the opportunity to explore their creativity and practise and develop their artistic skills, so we have created an after-school program to facilitate just that!

The Studio offersterm of weekly sessions, corresponding to the relevant school term, hosted at Rachel Grove Art Studio. Over the course of the term, students will:

  • receive guided teaching in drawing, painting, sculpture and design

  • develop a concept(s) for an original piece(s) of art

  • plan and produce original art with guided instruction

  • build a body of work and portfolio

  • select favourite pieces for display at a 'parents and friends exhibition' at the end of the term

  • assist in designing and developing the end of term exhibition

Sessions are a mixture of group and individual work, allowing students to go at their own pace, develop their own ideas, whilst still collaborating and learning together.

Both Art Club and Art Studio are open to students of all skill levels.

Our Philosophy

Small class sizes

Our class sizes are limited to 10, so each student can receive personalised instruction and mentoring.

It's also great for students who might be a bit shy!

Art education and development

Each term, students will learn new artistic skills, practice their existing skills and develop artworks based on their original concepts and ideas.

Mentoring 

Developing creativity and practicing making art is a wonderful way to build confidence and life skills.

Why the Studio?

Here's what makes us different!

01

Self-paced work

Art Studio and Art Club have a mixture of group and individual work, allowing students to go at their own pace, develop their own ideas whilst still collaborating and learning together.


Students will develop their own concepts and ideas over the course of the term and will receive instruction and support to bring those ideas to life.

02

Real Studio environment

Students will be working in a real, functioning art studio. Students who are interested in pursuing art full time will get to see how a studio operates and what being a full time artist is like.

03

End of term exhibition

At the end of each term, students will get to put on an exhibition for family and friends to showcase their work throughout the term.

04

Small class sizes

To ensure that every student gets the best learning opportunity and experience possible, the after-school art programs are capped at a maximum of 10 students per term.
