Art class for Grade 6 to Grade 9
Environment of guided experimentation and instruction. Term 1, 2019
Unit: Outside The Square

 

From Grade 6 to Grade 8 students are maturing, allowing for increasing levels of skill using art media and tools.

Art Keys classes are relaxed and fun, while students learn techniques and gain new skills as they progress through each unit. In an environment of guided experimentation and instruction students will cover a wide variety of experiences in the visual art area. 

Learning from other artist’s work and developing their own ideas, Art Keys students learn and grow skills in drawing and sketching, using a range of media such as graphite, aquarelle pencils, charcoal, inks and pastels.

Painting is explored using oils, acrylics, mixing mediums, chalk pastels, as well as mixed contemporary mediums.  

This class is designed to inspire, challenge, develop skill, and keep art fun. Over the term a wide variety of materials will be used, many of which children have not used before. Experimentation is encouraged!  As well as lessons including elements of drawing and painting, we will also discover printmaking, sculpture, clay work, mixed media, and many more.

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.
