Art classes for kids in Prep to Grade 3
A fun and active way to develop an interest and skills in art. Term 3, 2017
Unit: World Travellers

An Art Explorers (Formerly called What's in the Box?)
art class is for kids from Prep to Grade 3, and offers a fun and active way for kids to develop their interest and skills in the visual arts.

This class could see us ‘flying’ over the land to get a bird’s eye view, or experimenting with watercolours and a variety of papers. It could see us completing detailed sketches, talking about an artist’s work, or making modifications to a clay creature to enable it to run fast.

In this age group kids progressively learn techniques while using a variety of tools and media. The class environment is relaxed, encouraging experimentation and learning.

Art Explorers
helps kids develop a love of creating, helping them organise their ideas and manage their time.

The age range for this class is for children attending school (or home school equivalent) in Prep to Grade 3.

How many children are enrolled in a class? There are 10 places available to be booked in each time slot. We offer a total of 70 places each term in our Art Explorers age group.

How is the class structured? The class will begin with a 10 minute observational drawing exercise, before moving on to a variety of different art projects that fit with out weekly theme. We use the full 45 minutes for art activities, children do not do any set up, pack up or wash up in our art classes.

What is included in the cost? Your term fees cover a 9 week term, as well as all materials used in class. There are no extra materials purchases required for any of our art classes.


A Guide to Enrolment

All classes at Flying Fox Studios are run on an opt-in basis for every new term or unit. All places are offered on a first come, first served basis, each term. Current students need to re-enrol to secure a spot for the following term. Do the popularity of certain age groups, some classes will fill very quickly when a new enrolment period opens.

Our enrolment policy enables students to change class days and times between terms if needs be, new students to join a class, students to move up an age group in between terms, as well as enabling students to take a term off, without losing their place for the year.

We appreciate this policy may not suit everyone's preferences, however after many years of experience, and much consideration we believe this is the best, and fairest, policy for all out students. Thank you for your understanding.

We do offer a free trial class. A free trial booking does not reserve a spot in a class for the term. We recommend students interested in this age group attend a trial class in the term prior to the one they wish to enrol into (i.e come along for a trial lesson in Term 3, with a view to enrolling early when bookings open for Term 4). Free trial classes must be booked through out office.
