Art & Eco Garden Classes (Toddler)
ART & ECO GARDEN CLASSES are tailored to meet the growing skills of all age groups. We include a variety of activities each session that address the development of the children. We follow the themes to serve as a focal point for the class, allowing the teacher to relay information such as simple colour theory, mark making, and perspective. These activities support fine motor skill development and introduce different art making techniques.
We encourage our students to act as explorers and scientists in their art practice. The Artspark garden provides a rich hunting ground for natural objects that are collected and examined in the classroom, sparking a drawing activity or texture rubbing exercise. Our mini-Farm is a wonderful environment to create related artworks or to learn drawing live animals.
Above everything, we provide a safe and creative space for kids to connect with the joy of art, and development naturally follows. Classes run same as public school terms. Trial sessions are available.

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.
