Weekly Kids Art Classes

Saturday Drop in Sessions – Currumbin Studio
Our Saturday morning sessions are perfect for those mini-artists who like to experiment with their own ideas. Each Saturday we will have a different medium available for your mini-artist to make into their own project. One of our artists will be available for any questions or help that your mini-artist may need, and students will have access to all our reference material. PLEASE NOTE: This is not a step by step art class – students will work autonomously on their own projects!  Price includes a 20x25cm canvas board, upgrades to larger canvasses available for a few extra dollars.

No booking needed! However we can only fit 10 kids into our studio at a time!
