After School Art Classes

* It is likely social distancing measures will continue for some time due to Covid-19.  Unfortunately my studio is very small and I can't fit enough students in to make it economical to run face to face classes*


Open to existing and new students.  Zoom calls limited to 15 places. 

Enrollments will open on the 3rd June.  A booking link will be added to this page.

Zoom classes will run every Wednesday at 4.30pm. Classes run for approximately 1 hour.  Online tutorials will also be available if this is preferred, a class is missed or the Zoom class is full.

Term 3 Program Cost is $170 for entire 8 weeks including all materials.  Materials will be delivered for all classes in one box prior to Term starting. Cut off for materials orders is the 19th June.  If you miss this deadline you are welcome to purchase your own materials or make use of what art materials you have at home (discount of $40).  Additional materials packs for siblings is $30 as some materials can be shared.  

Individual classes can also be purchased at $20 each (materials not included).  Subject to availability.


Siblings can log on together for no extra cost.


Details of each class and the materials required can be found on the school holiday program page (Term 3 classes are a repeat of these lessons). (Students from Term 1 have already done Pete Cromer so they can do it again yet a bonus lesson will also be sent out for anyone who enrolls for the whole term - to be done in your own time).

For Bentleigh West Primary (BWPS) students I offer pick up from school at no extra cost.

After school classes are provided with afternoon tea from 3.45pm to 4.00pm.


Later classes go for longer and are more advanced.  Students may be presented with a more complex version of the project we are are doing that week and often they will work on longer term projects that span a few weeks. 

Students will paint, sculpt, print, draw and design using a large range of mediums and high quality art materials such as pastel (oil and chalk), paint (watercolour, acrylic),  clay (air dry and earthenware), paper mache, mosaic, plaster, specialty papers and printing inks.  I aim to expose them to a large variety of mediums and painting / drawing styles every term.

To support this we have an artist of the week which teaches the children about different artists and artistic styles.  This artist may be a well known artist or a new upcoming artist.  I also like to showcase local artists.

Each child will be presented with a Sunnyside Art House Visual Diary when they start, which we will use throughout the year.

All in person classes are $27 per student, paid by the term.  Discount applies for 2 or 3 children from the same family.

All classes were full at the end of Term 1.  These students will get priority when classes resume (hopefully Term 4).  If you would like go on the wait-list for a class please register your interest by using the form at the bottom of this page.  Please let me know your child's name, age and the days you wish to wait-list for.
