Art Classes for 7-12 Year Olds
Create Classy Art In A Brisbane Kids Art Class
Art classes for 7 – 12 year olds take exploring the world of art making to a new level. This is not just another unstructured craft lesson (they’ve seen it all before at this age!); these classes are taught by qualified educators considering current educational curriculum who allow creative kids to get hands on with a wide variety of media and tools, including printing, textiles, sculpture, clay modelling and more.
Students will develop techniques used by real artists, and gradually develop a deep understanding of the value and enjoyment that can be gained through art.
For this age group, art classes also provide a space for relaxation, self expression and socialising.
What happens in an art class for 7-12 year olds?
Each block of classes is based around a theme, inviting students to learn about the principles of design and creative techniques, along with discovering celebrated artists and the themes, methods and movements they are associated with.
With close guidance from our practising artists and qualified art teachers, students work in small groups on set projects at their own pace. They are given the opportunity to discover and extend on themes using their individual artistic style, encouraging free expression and confidence in their artistic abilities.
At the end of each term we hold a ‘mini exhibition’ where students can learn the principles of presentation and display, as well as appreciating other people’s artworks. We invite parents to come in and view the exhibition while they chat with their children about what they’ve learned –artistically and personally – during the term.
When, where and how much?
Classes operate on:
Saturdays: 8.30-10am & 10.30am-12noon
Classes are held under Block B at Morningside State School, 67 Pashen Street, Morningside.
Prices are as follows:
$32.00 per lesson if booking for the whole school term
$37.00 per casual class
Tiny Art groups children of similar ages together for age-appropriate stimulation, socialisation and fun. But we know all kids are different. So if your child wants to attend a different class, or there are siblings/friends who want to attend together, we’re flexible.
Upcoming 7-12 Classes
Thank you for all of your help in making Lucy & Emily’s birthday party last Sunday such a success. You certainly had the girls captivated and Lucy & Emily loved it. Thank you again. See you at the next holiday workshops!Michelle (Mum of Lucy and Emily, 8 years)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a fabulous birthday party on Saturday! Imogen had the best time with her friends learning all about art! All the girls are still talking about you and what they learnt and have been busy applying their newly learnt skills. What a wonderful afternoon it was.Rebecca (Mum of Imogen 8 years)
Charlotte has been attending Tiny Art Classes for nearly 2 years. She enjoys the diversity of activities and has learned so much about different artists and styles. She has made lovely friends and her increased skill level has made her approach her school art classes with confidence.Sandra (Mum of Charlotte 9)
Yara my daughter just loves Tiny Art because she gets to work on mini projects, using different material and methods every time! Deb is a wonderful art teacher, getting all the kids enthusiastic and helps them to open up their creative mind. Classes are well prepared with all the material there. After more then a year, we are amazed on how much inspiration Deb has.
Isabel (Mum of Yara, 8)
My children both love going to Tiny Art workshops. Deb’s classes have instruction, structure and yet give the children plenty of freedom to be creative. Art supplies are always plentiful and ideas are nurtured and encouraged. My girls have produced some of their best and most interesting works of art in Deb’s classes.
Emily (Mum of Ellie 9 & Lisa 6)
Tiny Art is a great outlet for my creative 8 year old. She gets to create fabulous artworks whilst developing an understanding that art has many facets and can be an ongoing process. Deb gives the kids much more food for thought and interesting projects that they think about and develop over time. It is great. My husband said “we need to frame this one” – when my daughter brought home the latest piece of artwork.
Mardi (Mum of Mikaela 8)
My two sons have done a range of Tiny Art holiday and Saturday workshops. They both really love all the classes and Deb keeps them busy for the whole time with plenty of different activities to do. Deb is always organised and has everything out and ready so the kids can get stuck straight into it. They have learnt a lot about proper artistic techniques and I am amazed at the quality of work they can produce in such a short time. I always get positive comments when I wear the jewellery they made in the jewellery workshop, and there are now lots of great artworks around our house that have come from the workshops with Deb
Cindy (Mum of Daniel, 9 and Kieran, 7)
