What we teach

Over the course of a term I teach my students a combination of art and drawing skills, new painting techniques through studying famous artists and art movements. We also look at craft, 3D construction, creating art through recycled materials and paper.


Class Age Groups: What we cover

For our junior art class we very much focus on building your child’s creative confidence, focusing on the building blocks of art. Fine motor skills, colour mixing and theory, 3D construction. We mix in elements of art history, famous artists and art skills in a fun, easy to understand way. Each class builds on the last and each term we reinforce the skills learnt before.

For the 1st to 6th class we focus more on drawing, still in a fun engaging manner designed to help your child learn more about art while still having fun along the way. We have a mix of painting, drawing and 3d building each term.

For our 3rd class + we really start to focus in on our drawing and fine art skills. We start to challenge our students to find their own creative voice. Testing their skills with projects that will sometimes take more than one class to complete and will combine a number of skills lessons in one. This older class is ideal for older children to help strengthen the foundation of their creativity.

Safety Guidelines for Craft Corner Classes 

As with our in person classes last season all children will be socially distanced within the class space (unless they are in an existing pod group elsewhere)

There will be no sharing of materials and all surfaces will be sanitised between sessions.

While no COVID safety forms are currently required we do ask that if children are sick they don’t attend the classes and if you miss a class you get access to either a live online class or a recorded video class you can watch in your own time.


What happens if you miss a class? 

As mentioned above if you miss a class in person you will be given access to an online video version of the class that you can do in your own time
