Classes

Standard

Junior Class

Age: 4 to 7

I teach guided drawing at this level. The children follow along as we work our way step by step through our class project. The children learn the basics of drawing.

At the beginning of term they learn how to use watercolor, pastels, sharpies, poster paint.

The emphasis is on enjoying the process finishing pieces of work they can be proud of.

We explore pencil, watercolor  pencils, coloring pencils, watercolor, oil paste, sharpie, paint, chalk pastel, explaining how they work and how they can be used together.

We work on a new class project every week.

Children bring their project home at the end of each class.

Intermediate class

Age 7 to 10

This is a step up from junior class where children start to work independently on individual work.

We follow a step by step system see example below.

Each child chooses their own projects from over 500+ different print outs.

I help each child with their drawing and painting and coloring.

I give each student individual time during each class.

They have access to all the supplies in the art room including professional markers, pastels, watercolor, acrylic, color pencils and much more!

Advanced Drawing Senior class

Age 8 to teens depending on child’s drawing level.

I passionately believe that children can be taught how to draw.

Drawing is a skill that can be acquired just as writing is an acquired skill.

I teach my students how to draw in proportion. We work with pencils, ink, watercolour, charcoal, pastels, acrylics and professional markers. I supply everything.

I have a Library of over a thousand images that students can choose from. Each student works on their own art piece that is personal to them.

I give each student individual time during each class.

I have developed a drawing method that is taught and has to be followed similarly to teaching children how to write. I provide feedback to parents on children’s progress.

It is a parents and child’s decision as to which class is best suited to them. I have found that some children aged 7 and 8 are able for advanced drawing class and some children aged 9 and 10 are not.

Our class library

Standard

Here is a sneak peak at how our class libraries work.

Each image in the library is prepared firstly for good composition. It is important that the images will make a good finished art piece that will inspire the students. I then print each image and place them in hard back display books. The books are categorized and each book holds up to eighty images.

At present we have over 70 books. With over 5,000 images for students to choose from.

I am continually adding categories and refreshing the images in the library.

As you can appreciate there is huge time and effort gone into compiling this library of images. I would ask you to remind your children that images must be returned to their books once used and not taken home.

If you would like to see some of the images we use visit my Pinterest page.

Why Should I Send My Child to Art Class?

Standard

Twenty Reasons Why Art is GREAT for Kids!

1 Art stimulates both sides of the brain.

2 33% of kids are visual learners.

3 There are studies that show that kids who make art read better and get better grades in science and mathematics.

4 Kids learn by using their senses and art is ideal in this process.

5 Kids need a place to express themselves at school.

6 Art promotes good self-esteem.

7 Art encourages kids to give more attention to the physical spaces that surround them.

8 Art develops hand and eye coordination.

9 Art stimulates perception.

10 Art teaches children to think openly; It represents a culture of questioners more than a culture of responders.

11 Art teaches that there is more than one solution for a problem.

12 Art teaches kids to think creatively to solve problems.

13 Kids can share and reflect on their work of art and learn something about the world they live in.

14 When art is integrated with the other subjects in the curriculum, kids commit more to the learning process.

15 In the process of doing art, the child is exposed to different possibilities, to discovery and freedom, thereby avoiding falling into the control and the predictability of the conventional education in the United States of today.

16 Art nourishes the human soul; One feels good doing it.

17 Art brings the cultural resources of the community into the class.

18 Art involves parents and teachers, inviting them to participate as volunteers in diverse activities.

19 Art provides a common ground across racial stereotypes, barriers and prejudices.

20 Art is valuable all by itself.

Camps

Standard

I occasionally run camps with very small numbers.

We will be running summer camps dates are still to be finalized.

Camps are run from my home studio in Terenure and places are always limited.

Please watch my website and Facebook page for notification.

You can email me to express interest and put your name on a wait list.

Please let me know your child’s age, interests and dates and months when you would like to attend and I will notify you about up coming events that would suit your child’s needs.
