OUR CURRICULUM

Our art curriculum is organic and individual. Firstly we try and focus on what each student wants and needs out of the classes. We take them through their first term of basic drawing skills and make sure their foundation is strong and ready for the type of art they are wanting to focus on.

There are weekly focuses and practices we all follow along with. For example some weeks the focus is on the medium eg. watercolour or oil painting. Other weeks the focus is on the subject eg. portrait or still life. Then other weeks we look at style eg.impressionism or realism. These various weekly focuses help us develop our skills and keep each student asking different questions of what is possible and what they enjoy.

Some students that become more developed decide to work on their own projects in class and we work individually with them to make sure they have support, supplies and most importantly… motivation!

In the end we really focus on the individual student, on growing their confidence, creativity and ability, whilst walking with them each step of the way.

There is also no need to begin in Term 1, you can start at anytime throughout the year.

SELECTED STUDIO STUDENTS:

Jess would like to personally invite artists on the Sunshine Coast who are interested in long term fine art guidance to her private weekly class. Jess has been teaching art for over two decades and is passionate about developing a small group of local artists who have been through the basics and are ready to take their art to the next level.

Specific forward motion in individual style and technique is the missing link in so many artists work. Having a mentor that understands this and the specifics of what the student is wanting to develop is key to an individual artists growth and success.

Working with a group of artists in a regular studio is one of the best ways to enjoy your art form and progress. Students in this class will need to bring all of their supplies. This is a 3hr class.

This class will help artists in the following areas:
  • Colour, perspective and Value technical training
  • Style Development
  • Drawing from Life
  • Goal Setting
  • Art Prizes
  • Exhibiting Work
  • Pricing your work for sale

HOMESCHOOL SPECIFIC CLASSES:

We now offer 2 Home School Classes on Fridays! We understand that Home School kids sometimes have specific needs and also prefer daytime options that can align with and support your current teaching curriculum.

We currently offer classes from Grade 3 (8 years old) and above. In our experience we have found that teaching the concepts of fine art and technical drawing / painting are difficult to pickup if the student is too young.

In saying that however, we also understand that the demand for art classes for 5-7 year olds may be high amongst Home Schoolers and we may need to change our curriculum slightly to suit that demand and accommodate younger students so we can continue to run a successful business. If you would be interested in classes for your 5-7 year old please email us and we may look at changing the classes in the future.
