Now accepting bookings for Term 2! Term 2 at Gloworm Studios starts on Tuesday the 7th of May and runs for 8 weeks.
Start the day by diving in to your creativity! Our before school art classes run on Tuesday mornings from 7 15 am - 8 30 am. Parents are welcome to drop off children before work. We are within walking distance to Fairfield Primary and Westgarth Primary School.
This class focuses predominantly on refining drawing, painting and illustration skills. It is the perfect class for students with a keen interest in drawing and illustration who are looking to develop and build confidence in their own personal style. In these classes we will explore observational drawing, shading techniques, experiment with a wide range of materials including pencils, fine liners, ink and watercolour paint
Projects range from botanical illustration, portrait painting, collage, mindfulness based art making and projects inspired by well known artists and current exhibitions. Through a series of fun filled and exciting activities students will learn the many ways we can express our creativity and imagination!
Classes at Gloworm Studios are purposely kept small to enable our teachers to tailor activities to the individual needs of each student. At Gloworm Studios all students are treated like the true artists that they are, therefore we fully encourage and nurture each student's development of their unique personal style.

Gloworm Studios is a unique art school located in the heart of Northcote. Led by professional illustrator Marianna Marx, our programs specialise in painting, drawing and illustration. Our classes are kept small to make sure each student receives the quality attention they deserve. Gloworm Studios is a warm and nurturing environment where artists both young and young at heart are invited to immerse themselves in their creativity and imagination.
Marianna Marx has taught art alongside her illustration career for the past 10 years. Her experiences include working in the education department at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, an artist residency at Caulfield Grammar School, one on one art tutoring for children and adults, after school art classes, corporate workshops and working alongside artists with intellectual disabilities. Marianna has taken insight from each of these experiences to create an art school of her own where she can share her love for creative expression with others in her local community.
