“POP UP” CLASSES AND STUDIO EVENINGS
ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS, TEACHERS AND EXPERIENCED ARTISTS WELCOME
Many adults wish for more time to themselves to explore pursuits that nourish them and give them a respite from the pressures of life. For most people, art is something that is the province of the “talented”. At Artstar, we know that this is not true. With guided teaching and instruction towards skill development ANYONE can learn to make art that is creative and aesthetically satisfying for the individual.
“POP UP” CLASSES
We aim to provide a space where adults who wish to begin making art can learn the skills and techniques necessary to produce quality work. Our experienced and friendly teachers make it easy for beginners to experience the joy of art. “Pop Up” classes are structured blocks where a particular approach and technique is explored. The idea is to teach specific skills and subject matter that scaffolds the learner’s knowledge and provides a support towards developing more individual creative practice as time goes on. We have regular “pop up” class blocks. Dates and times are notified on Facebook.
ArtStar also provides a creative studio space for Teaching Artists. As teaching artists ourselves, we know how important our teaching practice is. However, we also know that good teaching practice in art must co-exist with our own art practice. Studio evenings provide a space for busy teachers to nurture their own art work in an environment that can support and extend the individual as required.
At Artstar, we provide space for practising artists to further their work and approach in a guided, supportive environment. Many artists work in isolation and many do not have access to facilities such as a kiln or printing press. Artstar provides a fully equipped studio space that can support artists in their creativity and provides access to a group of creatives who are PASSIONATE about art!
ADULT ART CLASSES ARE HELD ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS FROM 6-8PM. SUMMER AND WINTER SCHOOLS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON ADULT CLASSES PLEASE PHONE MICHELLE ON 0437630475
