Art Discovery class for Grade 3 to Grade5
Relaxed and encouraging, developing skills in the Visual Arts. Term 1, 2019 
Unit: Take A Line For A Walk


Bookings for Term 1 2019 will opened at 7:30am on November 26th. This age group is now fully booked for Term 1 2019.

Term 2 2019 enrolments will open Monday March 18th.

Kids from Grade 3 to Grade 5 will love Art Discovery!

Classes are relaxed and encouraging, as kids are developing their interest and skills in the visual arts. Kids will be introduced to a variety of tools, media and techniques.

In an Art Discovery class the teacher acts as guide as the kids experiment and progressively learn skills and techniques. Art Discovery kids are developing confidence in their drawing while learning about organising their ideas and projects.

A typical class could see us sketching, etching and making prints as we explore the properties of watercolour. Or we could mix and make 15 shades of green for a rainforest painting, then search pictures to find colours in the shadows. We could create a 3D image, and learn about presenting our work for others to appreciate.

This class is all about building skills in the visual arts, confidence in each child's own ability, and creating some artworks each child can be proud of.

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 60 places each term in our Art Discovery age group.

What age is Art Discovery for?

Children must be attending Grade 3, 4 or 5 (or homeschool equivalent) in 2018 to enrol in this class (the majority of children will be between 9 and 11 years of age). As we begin using oils, sprays and stencil knives in this age group, we will not enrol any students younger than Grade 3 into this class.

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.

Each week the students will work on projects that build a portfolio of work. Portfolios will go home with the students at the end of each term.



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.

We also 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.

Students must meet the correct age / grade requirements for enrolling in a class at Flying Fox Studios. Students enrolling in Art Discovery during 2018 must be attending Grades 3, 4 and 5 in 2018. This is our standard policy across all classes, programs, and age groups. Students that are Grade 3 age, but attending Grade 2 in 2018 will be able to enrol into this age group in 2019. This is a firm policy, and out of age enrolments will not be accepted.
