Art Classes for 2 – 5 Year Olds
The Little Kids Art Class With Big Benefits
Art classes for 2-5 year olds introduce children to the world of art making using a range of techniques, such as painting, printing, sculpture, drawing, collage, textiles and clay. But that’s only scratching the surface of what an art class can do for your child!
Little kids art classes are highly stimulating, providing major benefits for your child’s cognitive development as they experiment with colours, use their imaginations and solve problems. The Program is planned considering the learning outcomes of the Australian National Early Years Learning Framework in addition to the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines.
Added to this are the fine motor developments and pre-writing skills that come from holding pencils and paint brushes, manipulating textiles or cutting and pasting materials for a collage. In a little kids’ art class, your child will work with all five senses to express their feelings, fire their imaginations and get a sense of achievement as masterpieces are produced!
What happens in an art class for 2-5 year olds?
Each lesson is set to encourage students to experiment with colours, textures and making marks. They discover that sometimes the process of art making can be more important than the end product, encouraging free expression and confidence in their artistic abilities.
Classes are complemented with music, artist information and examples to keep kids engaged and help trigger imaginative creations. Students are grouped into classes with children of a similar age, leading to delightful opportunities for socialisation and age-appropriate play.
Students work in small groups, with close guidance from our practising artists and qualified art teachers. Parents and guardians are encouraged to join in and support children as they work.
When, where and how much?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. Our current workshops for 2-5 year olds can be viewed and booked online on the below link.
Our 2-5 classes are: $25.00 per class – 45 mins workshop (parents stay)
Classes are held under Block B at Morningside State School, 67 Pashen Street, Morningside.
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.
Limited places are available for each workshop. Please book early to avoid disappointment. 2-5 year olds must have a parent/guardian present for the duration of the class. Workshops only run if there is a minimum of 4 children per workshop.

My son and I love our weekly art workshop. Each week is different, using clay, pastels, paint and collage. Deb always introduces the workshop with a painter or photos of what we are going to do and often there is music while we paint too. Frankie has learnt so much about the world and how to portray it in a fun, constructive way. I love to watch him painting with his eyes closed whilst listening to the music!Emma (Mum of Frankie, 4)
Tiny Art has truly been our number one activity since we joined the classes. It is wonderful how Deb introduces different painting tools to the little ones and shows them different techniques how to use them. It is great fun; never boring and we always come home with another wonderful masterpiece to show off to relatives and friends.Melanie (Mum of Luisa 5 & Isla 3)
My girls absolutely LOVE coming to Tiny Art. They get to explore so many different textures and colours and with expert guidance from Deb and apply this to a different theme each week. They love getting messy with paint and glitter all over their hands… I love that they come out of the class squeaky clean! I also really appreciate how relaxed, approachable and fun Deb is whilst maintaining professionalism both in and out of the class. Her communication detailing class details, reminders, changes, holidays etc is crystal clear which is a BIG help to any busy parent trying to keep track of all the kids activities’.Charisse (Mum of Isabella, 5)
Thanks so much for the teachers professionalism and expertise running our son’s art party. The children loved their creations and I was very impressed with the teachers management and approach.Ellen (Mum of Sam, 5)
Tiny Art is a wonderful creative outlet for small people. My daughter has so much fun participating in all of Deb’s amazing projects and is so proud of her masterpieces when she brings them home. I’d recommend Tiny Art to anyone looking for an activity that will help their child grow and blossom in a fun learning environment’.Jo (Mum of Gabi, 3)
