Our Art Classes inspire children to consider the way in which they see their world: colours, materials, perspective, shape and light come together to form our visual experience. We aim to unpack these formal visual components in order to use them in creating our own thought-provoking and imaginative artworks.
Each lesson aims to build on one or more of the following primary art-making skills: Drawing, Collage, Sculpture, Painting and Colour-usage.
Foundation Phase: (4 – 7y)
These lessons aim to pave the way for more advanced art-making in the future.
- Develop fine-motor skills
- Establish a foundation for thinking about art-making
- Develop drawing accuracy
- Improve listening and observation skills
- Introduce children to a wide range of materials and methods
- Develop creative problem solving skills
Senior Primary Phase: (8 – 13y)
In these classes, we aim to grow the techniques introduced in the younger classes and direct them towards developing more complex projects: Drawing by observation, Painting on Canvas, Layering Textures, Manipulating Colour and much more!
Creating art is a different way of thinking. It requires focus, accuracy, curiosity and playfulness all at the same time!
