If there is one thing people like to draw, it’s people! Human anatomy is one of the core skills in art, so this Spring we’ll be focusing on anatomy and personal identity, whether it’s ourselves or others, outside or inside!

ENROL NOW: Term starts from 28 Feb!
Existing students do NOT need to re-enrol.
Explorer’s Art (3 – 5 yrs)
Let’s go Abstract for our Mar-Apr term! Our little Explorers will playfully reinterpret signature artistic pieces with unconventional techniques and materials inspired by masters past and present. We’ll experiment with papercraft collage, 3D sculpting, squeegee rainbow painting, and many more – so remember parents, it’s not a mess, it’s abstract!
Core Art (5 – 10 yrs)
As Spring approaches, our Core Artists will investigate the symbolism of life and vitality, with drawings of the human form. Then with a larger-than-life anatomical sculpture, heavily decorated in an opulent style and analogous colours, we’ll celebrate the hardest working muscle in the body, the heart!
Drawing Fundamentals (6 – 8 yrs)
Learn the fundamentals of human anatomy and the anatomy of a drawing, all in one project! Discover how the skeleton forms a framework for the body, how to render a dynamic pose with your linework using acrylic paints and markers. Create a layered artwork on acetate that vividly depicts the relationship between skeleton, anatomy, colour, and line.
Ready-Set-Draw (8 yrs+)
Design, draw, and paint a personalized home that displays your interests and personality. Learn how to utilise scale and proportion, along with one-point and two-point perspectives to add the illusion of depth to your watercolour illustration. Take inspiration from Emily Sutton and craft an intricately detailed dream house.
Comics (8 yrs+)
Mini Zine ME
You want to get your art and ideas out into the world, and you want to do it now? Harness a “do it yourself” attitude to create and self-publish your own mini zine to share with friends and family. Pick a theme close to your heart, then pack your tiny magazine with comic strips, illustrated poems, and hilarious hand-drawn memes. Create the content, design the layout, and photocopy a limited run!
(Pottery-Ceramics 10 yrs+)
Fundamentals Master Class
Learn to build three-dimensionally and excel in creation that takes form in art ware, figurines, sculpture, decorative and applied art objects. Acquire fundamental skills from pinching, coiling, slab to wheel-throwing, we shall experiment with new materials whilst utilising techniques of slip casting, clay modelling, and surface texturing.
(Digital Arts 10 yrs+)
Epic Fictional Realm
Make your art epic! Experiment with a range of techniques that recreate the appearance of layered watercolours and underpainting with oils in the digital medium. Study the genre of fantasy art and learn how to compose your own scene with dramatic lighting and heroic figures, inspired by the legendary Frank Frazetta.
Sketchbook Studies & Painting (10 yrs+)
Anatomy & Self
Develop your knowledge of anatomy and improve your observational skills through a series of figure drawing exercises. Construct an anatomically correct drawing of individual body parts using simplified shapes following French artist Charles Bargue’s influential method. Then turn your gaze inwards and create a self-portrait that tells a story, using a range of techniques such as collaging previous drawings, gold foil, ink painting, and dripping effects, inspired by Chinese-American contemporary artist Hung Liu.
Tactile Textile (12 yrs+)
Coat of Arms
From the European “Coat of Arms” to the Japanese “Mon”, heraldry can be seen as the ancestor of the modern ID card. Inspired by this iconographic tradition, you will design a new crest that reflects your contemporary life and aspirations, or an emblem representing your family or people. Use applique and mending techniques with found fabric, patchwork, and bricolage, and get busy fashioning a Coat of Arms series, then pick the one badge that you will be proud to wear!
