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, one-one mentoring, 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.

10 May 2021COLLAGE WORKSHOP WITH JACQUI STOCKDALE
Jacqui’s collage workshop was inspiring, absorbing and a lot of fun too. Jacqui is an excellent teacher and generous in sharing practical tips to help achieve professional collages. A wide range of materials were on offer. Everyone worked with real focus, guided by Jacqui and some wonderful collages were created. I would highly recommend this workshop.

09 May 2021COLLAGE WORKSHOP WITH JACQUI STOCKDALE
Art class Co with Jacqui Stockdale at the helm made for a delightful day. Working in the artist’s own private space made for a delicious day of connecting with your soul and other lovers of art in the room. Jacqui is a wonderful teacher with years of experience. The safety net of Jacqui’s experience allowed us to ask many questions to deliver the best possible personal outcome. My favourite line of the day I from Jacqui ...’as you collage you get ideas for other projects. I am a photographer and it was great to move away from what I do into another creative land. I highly recommend this uplifting day, 4.5 hours when by like an hour!
