2016 Art Classes

I have had 4 years experience working as a primary art specialist, and also exhibit and sell my own work. I am a big advocate in the importance of art education as it enhances academic performance as well as emotional resilience. This year I am running a range of art classes from my home studio. I design my lessons to teach students to make artistic choices and generate their ideas; as well as learning practical skills such as contour drawing and printmaking. I am also able to assist ATAR art students with their art assignments.

Students will work with clay (firing is an additional small cost), mixed-media, watercolour and painting techniques, drawing, and perspective. Homeschool students will be provided with a brief report at the end of each unit.

The Details:

Cost: $96 (casual rate $15 per class) Classes run for 8 weeks.

As an artist, I am deeply inspired by imagery that explores tangible metaphors. This is perhaps why I am drawn to the world of fairytale, fantasy, dreams and iconic or religious artwork; especially from artists in the early renaissance. In many of my paintings, I try to use images, landscapes and objects to weave together a story or a sense of nostalgia and distant memory. My favourite art medium is acrylics, however, I also love mucking around with mixed media and pastel, and I occasionally work with oils. I have been known to paint furniture, murals and surfboards, mostly because I love to surround myself with the energy of colour.

      Me either! It feels so great to work from home…fits in perfectly with homeschooling. I’m only at my school in Halls Head one day a week 🙂 Hope you are having a good January break!
