Description

Welcome to the most popular 'mini art school' in Melbourne, Artclassco was founded in 2009 by award winning artist Jacqui Stockdale and is situated in the heart of the Melbourne, Brunswick St, Fitzroy. The experienced tutors help create a warm and productive atmosphere to work in and many students return for years on end. Fundamental skills and techniques are introduced and developed through a range of mediums including painting, drawing and multimedia with an emphasise on enhancing observational skills by working directly from life. As well as the structured four week short courses, individual projects can be developed and long term attendance arranged at a discounted fee. 

Join us as a complete beginner wishing to express yourself and learn the basics, to brush up on your existing practice or anything in between. 

The traditional art studio offers beverages, nibbles and an inspiring music play list to work to. 

Artclassco has an annual 'salon exhibition' at the end of the last semester where students work is on display for family friends and the public to enjoy.

FOUNDER: JACQUI STOCKDALE

Born 1968, Melbourne, Australia; lives and works in Melbourne, Australia, Jacqui Stockdale was raised in Benalla in northeast Victoria. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1990 and later moved to Hobart to undertake a Graduate Diploma (Video Art) at the University of Tasmania. She moved to Sydney in the late 1990s and then to Darwin in 2000 to take up an appointment as the Arts Officer at Berrima Prison.

Her experiences teaching art to inmates has fundamentally shifted the way she approached her art practice and thought about the construction of identity. Since returning to Melbourne in 2002 Stockdale has exhibited extensively within Australia and internationally, including  in Magic Object, Art Gallery of South Australia, 2016; Arthur Guy Memorial Award, Bendigo Gallery, 2015; Joseph Ulrick & Win Schubert Award, Gold Coast City Gallery, 2015; Alles Maskerade, Museum Villa Rot, Germany, 2014; and Living Rooms, curated by Robert Wilson, Louvre Museum, Paris, France, 2014. Stockdale's work is held in significant collections within Australia and internationally.

I had a fantastic time. I had so much fun creating my sweet Queen Collage with an awesome group of people. Jacqui was such a positive, inclusive and supportive teacher. I would very much recommend this class. Jo

This was a new experience for me and at first I was a little unsure of the technicalities of the zoom platform. But once I got started, I thoroughly enjoyed my class and even surprised myself with my art piece end product. Thank you Jacqui, you were a wonderful teacher! I highly recommend to anyone to have a go! Maria

this class was transporting! in very little time, with no prior experience, i was skilfully guided to create a mini-masterpiece! i also bought a ticket for my seventy year-old mum to join in & i was absolutely delighted to see her untapped creativity revealed within a completely foreign environment & medium! i’m so proud of her :) and satisfied with the whole experience. the feeling of connection and relaxation was palpable!
