All of our classes in our calendar are designed for adults.
The Fun Saturday Paintaway class is the only one where children under 12 are welcome, if a parent books in with them at the same time.
Usually I don’t teach kids’ classes just due to lack of time in between these adult classes and all of my painting commissions. There are a few other places that you can go that specialise in children’s classes. But I have taken on some special cases along the way.
If your child is young (such as under 12 years old) and if they are showing some real talent then there are still some other questions to ask. Do they have a real passion for it? Most importantly is your child wanting (for themselves, not for you) and willing to come along to learn from a full time professional artist? If so, then I may be able to make an exception, and provide a special one-on-one class where they can really learn some good skills and techniques.
My teaching builds the ability to see what is truly there, so I can guarantee that their drawings (and/or paintings) would improve out of sight, and they will learn skills they can use for a lifetime. My personal tuition rates (one-on-one) are $165 for the first hour, then $132 for each following hour at the studio here. A two hour session is recommended to gain meaningful learning. This price is the same if you wanted to join in the session and have some fun with them while they are learning – if this is appropriate. For very young children we would require initially that you are at least present in the building while they are learning.
You could try out a session to see what you think and then consider doing a 5 week block after that. If they enjoy it, and they show some skills and their age and personality was suitable then later on they may be able to join one of our adults’ courses which are a lot more affordable, being in a classroom situation.
