Children's Art Classes with My Little Perfect
Explore various artistic techniques and embrace your own individual style as an artist with Children's Art Classes by My Little Perfect.
Surrounded by the picturesque gardens of the Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne's premier artistic community, My Little Perfect is hosting a range of art classes in Term 1, with 'Let's Get Messy' for children aged 3 – 4, 'Art Explorers' for children aged 5 – 11 and 'Cool Cats', for children aged 12 – 15.
Let's Get Messy: Ages 3 – 4 Children will experiment with a diverse range of art techniques and mediums including painting, pasting, cutting, drawing, stamping and printing which might get a little messy! Activities in this age group require parent/guardian attendance. We aim to encourage the development of fine motor skills and provide an opportunity for parents / guardians to engage in a creative process with their little person.
Art Explorers: Ages 5 – 11 In these after school classes, children will explore drawing, painting, printing, textiles, assemblage and collage techniques with an emphasis on the technical aspects of the elements and principles of design (colour, line, texture, shape, balance, tone). The classes are also aimed at beginning to embrace the individual and unique style of each participant.
Cool Cats: Ages 12 – 15 These after school lessons focus on drawing, painting, printing, textiles, assemblage, collage, and ceramics. This class aims to encourage independent decision making in students artistic practices; encourage experimentation and exploration of new materials as well as combing mediums. It also has a strong component in theoretical aspects of art including investigation of artists (both past and contemporary) as sources of inspiration for their work, along with historical periods of art.
All class fees include art materials and aprons, a visual diary to record ideas, a folio of work at the end of the term with a certificate of achievement, plus a complimentary coffee / tea at Cam's Kiosk for parent / guardian.
