Congratulations to the winners of the people's choice awards - Miriam (adults), Jorja (8-12yrs) and Dimitri (7&unders)!
What an amazing year so far. Students of all ages have been immersed in creative practice, drawing and painting, learning new techniques, building on foundations, and pushing boundaries. The date for our mid year exhibition is this coming Friday, 26th June. Hope to see all existing students and their families here - our exhibition is an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the creative energy that has been generated here.
77 artworks, 18 awards, 8 chickens, 2 musicians.. and not enough sausages! Drawings, acrylic paintings, pastel drawings, watercolour paintings, clay, wire and wooden sculptures filled the studio. Proud family members looked on while our young artists received awards.
Congratulations again to these talented, creative children -
By request, the adult students will also receive awards next year! The People's Choice Award will be announced this week, good luck everyone.
Congratulations on a creative, imaginative, productive year.
Looking forward to more creating and learning in 2015.

Please come along to the opening and say hello!
It has been such a productive, creative season here in the studio.
The children enrolled in after school art have been busy enlarging a tiny object of their choice into a work of art almost larger than themselves. In an age of instant gratification, it has been wonderful to see them beginning to enjoy the rewards for their own patience and persistence.
Social art nights have become a weekly event.
A still life is a colourful and challenging subject, and is a great chance for students to get out of their comfort zones. Well done the lovely women who attempted this arrangement!
Looking forward to a creative Springtime with current students! And for those of you that are thinking about coming along.. join us this Spring. What a great time of year to start something new.
Looking forward to another creative, colourful term. Ready to learn, collaborate, inspire!
The mid-year exhibition is fast approaching...
The kids in after school art have been busy covering canvases.
The adults have also completed gorgeous works over the last couple of weeks.
Can't wait for the exhibition!
