CHILDREN’S ART CLASSES – 8 WEEKS FOR THE PRICE OF 7 UNTIL 26TH JULY – ONLY $336 (USUALLY $384)

Welcome to Active Art – where imagination meets creativity!

Our after school children’s art classes are designed to ignite your child’s passion for art while fostering confidence and self-expression.

In this exciting 8 week course, no prior skills are required, only a love for creativity and enthusiasm to explore. Led by the talented artist and educator, Kristine Ballard, your child will embark on an artistic journey filled with fun, learning, and discovery.

No skills required, just enthusiasm and a love for creativity. 

Course Overview

This term we are embracing the Olympics and at The Brightspace, we are going for Team Art! There are many similar elements to becoming great at what you do, between sports people and artists. Dedication, practice and the right mindset are just a few.

Get your kids creating as they join Team Art and delve into ‘active art’. Drawing figures, painting scenes and even modelling medals will be part of the experience and each class will involve practical skill building techniques.

What to Expect

Guided by an enthusiastic artist, your child will delve into creative exploration, nurturing their imagination, fostering self-expression, and honing their individual artistic vision. Through hands-on activities, audio-visual teaching resources and guided instruction, they will develop essential skills for creative thinking. This interactive workshop provides a stimulating social environment, encouraging collaboration and connection among young artists.

Engaging in artistic endeavours has been shown to have numerous positive effects on children’s mental and emotional well-being, including stress reduction, enhanced self-esteem, and a profound sense of achievement.
