Different artists sharing their core area of expertise will teach the children in blocks.

During the Level 2 program the focus is on enhancing abilities through broadening visual vocabulary whilst also retaining children’s ability for free-flowing creative expression. Level 2 classes form a sound foundation for Level 3.

Our special club for children aged 8 – 12 years is all about creative experiences and activities with ART as the focus, with a fun program designed by artist Hayley Gillespie. Kids are introduced to new ways of looking at, talking and thinking about art, craft and design. Some sessions involve individual or collective art making, in which case materials will be provided. Art Club sessions are held at the Gallery or other inner city locations and parents are asked to take kids to and from pre-arranged locations if required.
