Located in the middle of Rozelle in Sydney, Artspark is a sun-filled art and sewing studio with an eco-friendly garden. The garden has many edible plants, and is home to three chickens and two guinea pigs. A perfect place to relax, play, and source materials for projects, the garden also gives students the opportunity to tend to plants, and learn how to associate with animals in kind ways.

Artspark provides school term classes, holiday workshops, weekend parties and events, and adult art & sewing classes. Our classes and workshops use recycled materials, and various art methods and mediums, such as collage, paint, found materials, papier-mâché sculpture, and drawing media. Many of our projects focus on learning from nature, and use a STEAM approach. We believe art-making is a valuable tool for self expression and gaining independence.

We had a wonderful time creating a portrait for Mother's Day and printing it onto a tea towel. Feeding the guinea pigs was also very fun!

My four year old absolutely loved the art playgroup. The art activity kept her engaged, and the right level of challenging so she did not become overwhelmed. She absolutely loved feeding the Guinea pigs at the end. It’s a wonderful way to spend a morning.

Today was our first day and we were a little late, however we were welcomed by ChiChi who explained the procedure for the morning. We found the the art activities, the food gathering and the interaction with her animals very gentle and kind, and age-appropriate. The children felt comfortable. They loved the pottery making and the food gathering in the garden. They were fascinated by the guinea pigs, the chickens and the cat. The hour and a half went by very quicky and was thoroughly enjoyabe.
