Funky Portrait painting - online

Live via Zoom


Online, Kids School Holiday Art - Create a portrait

In this fun class, your child will get to choose someone they would like to paint, mum, dad, teacher, friend or even themselves? Either way they will get to paint their own individual funky portrait.

Your child's online learning experience, in the comfort of your own home, will consist of step-by-step tuition with gentle guidance which is the same as in person classes. You will be given individual attention to ensure you are following along and happy with your progress.

In this session each child will get to paint their very own amazing artwork, using non-toxic acrylic paints with the colours of their choice, they will be guided to achieve the best outcome with their work. They will be encouraged to use their imagination and incorporate decision making and self-expression.

They will learn how to complete their work from start to finish, including drawing their image. They are gently guided, learning drawing and painting techniques & processes, colour use & mixing, brush care and responsibility amongst many other things along with social interaction.

They will feel proud of themselves along with a sense of achievement. It is about boosting their self-esteem, inspiring them, encouraging decision making and expressing themselves through creativity to feel good about themselves.

Art classes are an excellent way for children to move through lack of self-confidence, anxiety, social difficulties along with any other personal or emotional situations.

You don’t need a large space to create your art. All that is required is a small desk/table, chair & your art supplies. If you are concerned about spills or mess, use a drop cloth or old sheet and place it on the floor around the area where you are creating artwork.

A laptop, desktop or tablet is preferable so you can see your instructor in a larger format, but smartphones will also work. You will be required to angle your device at your artwork so that I can provide personal feedback as you create your artwork in real time.  Instruction will be given step by step to enable your child to follow along.

A MATERIALS list is provided upon booking. Feel free to use your own materials or you can order them online and receive everything at your front door. I  do have some kits available providing there is time to order and receive. Please ask here.

If you are new to Zoom, it is recommended to familiarise yourself with the basic process of logging in and joining a meeting. Zoom is a very easy system to use, everyone can do it!

This class will be kept to a maximum of approx. 6-8 students ensuring your child receives all the help they need. Parents may be required to assist with set up, minimal parent supervision is then best, to let your child explore their creativity themselves.

Be sure to have yourself set up, ready to start painting at the allocated time. And please remember to angle your camera at your artwork for the online sessions.
