Drop in Classes - Currumbin Studio

Our Saturday morning sessions are perfect for those mini-artists who like to experiment with their own ideas.

Intermediate Project Class for teens - Currumbin Studio

Our intermediate project course introduces our students to a more independent way of learning to help transition into senior school or university studies, which rely on a self directed learning rather than instructional classes.

This course will be structured so for the first half of each term students will develop a reference journal of techniques and quick ideas that we can use whilst we plan and conceptualise our final artworks. These techniques will span various media and style era’s but will be a working reference for your student rather than finished projects.

The sixth lesson will be planning and developing materials lists, finalising concepts and perhaps beginning our initial outlays of our project.

The final 4 weeks will be independently working on our projects with assistance from our teacher. This course is suitable for students wishing to apply for art excellence, Certificate courses in art, or move into tertiary studies. It will not only develop their creative ability, but also their independent study skills.

Outcomes your student can expect to cover in this course include:
Watercolour, acrylic, brush and sketching techniques, journaled for future reference.
 – Concept sketching and applying notations.
 – Proportioning of human, animal and inanimate subjects, shading in response to a determined light source.
 – Planning artworks, developing materials lists and citing references.
 – Sending a message through visual arts
 – Creative independence and time management skills.
