The Pencil Room

The Pencil Room provides fine art tuition for children from five to fifteen years of age in term by term after-school classes.

Each class focuses on fostering creative thinking and practical techniques within the relevant stage of artistic development. Classes are taught in a welcoming learning environment with a maximum of eight students to cater for individual attention and engagement from tutors.

Art Juniors / 5-7 years
This is an introductory class that provides a stimulating environment for creative play. Students can experiment with 'messy' materials they may not have access to at home or school. Each week we have a new project designed to develop imagination, co-ordination and new art skills.

Term 1 focuses on drawing techniques using pencil, charcoal, ink, watercolour. Term 2 moves into further painting techniques. Runs on Tuesdays 4.00pm - 5.30pm, 12th Feb - 2nd Apr (8 weeks), 5-7 years, $200.00

Let's Get Creative / 8 - 11 years
This is a weekly art class that provides children with the practical skills to explore artistic creativity, while encouraging originality and celebration of their own unique style. We work in a number of different art mediums and undertake projects to develop creative thinking that will carry over to other areas of life.

Term 1 focuses on drawing techniques using pencil, charcoal, ink, watercolour. Term 2 moves into further painting techniques. Runs on Mondays 4.00pm - 5.30pm, 11th Feb - 1st Apr (8 weeks), 8-11 years, $200.00

Teen's Art Club / 11-15 years
This is a weekly class for 11-15 year olds wanting to improve their practical drawing and painting skills and learn about traditional and contemporary art concepts. Techniques and ideas learnt in this class complement high school art studies.

Students are often taught on an individual basis depending on their interests and skill level and work in a more self-directed manner. Runs on Wednesdays 4.00 - 5.30pm, 13th Feb - 3rd Apr (8 weeks), 11-15 years, $200.00

Saturday Morning Classes / 5-11 years
A general weekly art class for young art enthusiasts. Learn drawing and painting techniques with a different theme each week. This is a great way to introduce kids to art if an after-school commitment is not suitable. Runs on Saturdays 9 - 10.30am, 2nd Mar - 6th Apr (6 weeks) 5-11 years, $150.00
