Children’s Art Classes

Term 4 2018

bannerTerm42018combo.jpg

Wild Things Art has a fantastic, high-quality art programme that helps children build self-esteem and discover and express their individuality. The students develop an understanding of their own creative process to overcome challenges and solve problems and learn about whole lot of amazing, inspirational artists and their techniques along the way.

We generally work on 4-5 projects during the course which is based on a different theme each term. It is so rewarding to see them develop and grow in this open and supportive environment. I LOVE teaching art and I feel extremely lucky to be able to run this programme in my local community.

We have classes for all age groups and we are able to cater for students at all levels of ability as class sizes are limited.

Location: Wild Things Art Studio, 548 Te Atatū Road, Te Atatu Peninsula
Time: 1:00pm -2:30pm

What can you find? This month’s collaborative project is called ‘Search and Find’. Putting some awareness into art and some creativity into recycling, we will be re-purposing found objects into a colourful search and find project. We will have a hefty collection of junk available but feel free to bring some of your own. Old toys, broken plastic tools, bottle caps etc. These workshops are a great way for children and adults to connect and work towards a collaborative artwork. Through learning together, practicing patience and communication we can discover the joy of the process and create an important bond through art.
