FUN, EDUCATIONAL HOLIDAY PROGRAMMES
Artstar provides “pop up” school holiday art programmes for children aged 7 and up. Holiday programmes usually run over the summer and winter holiday period (January and June/July). Programmes are run by our experienced teachers and provide a wonderful opportunity for children to get creative outside of the school term. Projects are diverse and change with each holiday block. For further information on when our holiday programmes are run, please access our Facebook page.
TUITION FOR SENIOR ART STUDENTS
Senior art at school is very challenging and demands a high level of commitment. Many students find the required leap in thinking, reading, research and knowledge very challenging. At Artstar, we provide support and extension to assist students with the set tasks provided in school time. Our tutoring programme is run by teachers with tertiary qualifications in both art and teaching. We aim to support and extend student ideas with up-to-date knowledge of art, artists and art practise that provides assistance to students in their school programme. All Artstar teachers are tertiary trained and practising artists, so our level of tuition is practical but underpinned by current research and knowledge.
ASSISTANCE WITH FOLIO PREPARATION FOR SPECIALISED EDUCATION
Artstar also provides assistance and support for students wishing to prepare folios for entry into specialised school programmes or higher level art schools. We specially devise and design curriculum approaches and projects that address entry requirements as per each individual student.
Artstar also provides the opportunity for some select students to develop and present their art in our “Artstar Gallery”. Individual or small group shows are gauged on artistic merit and the evidence that a student is able to create a solid body of work with a mature artistic style. Select shows are included in our monthly exhibition programme. Art Openings are celebrated evening events attended and celebrated by the artist’s friends and family and seen by the wider community.
