We explore a wide variety of techniques including drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. Whilst the main focus is on fine art disciplines, we also feel it is important to incorporate an element of sculpture and handicraft techniques so students are offered a broad selection of skills. Aside from students learning some great art methods, we are big on making sure they are having fun and are able to express their creativity and individuality in a nurturing environment. This program is suitable for all skills levels and boys.
