Learning new techniques while developing your own unique style as an artist.
After School classes for teens enrolled in grades 7-9 and are run during school term.
Each class we will be building on and enhancing fine art skills through sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, painting and drawing from observation as well as crafting projects.
The classes aim to provide students with access to a vast range of quality art mediums whilst developing technical skills as a Teen Artists.
Each term students will rotate through our 3 custom-built contemporary studio spaces within our school providing students with access to ceramic sculpture studio with kiln, painting and printmaking studio and illustration studio.
Each week, students will learn how to plan out and produce finished pieces of art through creative process as well as recording their ideas in a visual diary.
The classes are designed to enhance the student’s own unique style through the techniques we teach.
Students have the freedom to work at their own pace. Small class sizes of no more than 8 students ensure optimum development and a well-rounded experience.
Classes encourage creative expression, teaching students communication skills, critical thinking and the ability to work collaboratively.
In this 9 week program students will learn a variety of ceramic sculpture techniques.
Starting with basic slab building followed by hand-building techniques. Students will learn how to handle different clay bodies, teaching students the limitations of each type of clay.
Students will then move onto more advanced construction techniques using their slab building skills to create flatware, coil creations and porcelain contemporary sculptures of their own design. Each student will be introduced to decorative methods using embossing, brushing medium, underglazes, pigments and gloss glazes.
This is a very technical program where students will see their works through the building stages right through drying, bisque firing, glazing and finally glaze firing. This program will cover off all the basics and is suited to absolute beginners up.
The course fee covers all materials as well as firing of each students work.
In this 8 week program, students will learn a variety of printmaking techniques using silk screens, stencilling & linoleum methods.
While most fine art practices are known for being single pieces that can never be replicated in exact detail, printmaking is a type of art that utilises the ability to create multiple copies of a piece of art.
