Little Ginger Studio offers an innovative after-school Visual Art program with a focus on nurturing each child’s individual creativity.
Our “Big Kids” art classes are designed for Upper Primary (from year 3) and includes a program featuring challenging artistic projects using techniques and media often only explored in Secondary School. Projects are completed over longer periods and include the creation of a large, detailed ceramic piece over each term completed for several sessions. Advanced Printmaking techniques (such as screenprinting) using artist quality inks and detailed crafting projects may also be explored.
Students draw inspiration from contemporary Art & Design, Media and Fashion Illustration, Nature, their immediate surroundings, movies and technology. Each term offers a new program around a loose central theme that develops over the course of the term,as the students and teacher work together to develop the artworks.
As with our Open classes, exploration of materials is key, and students are exposed to and experiment with many types of art-making and a variety of media to create high-quality artworks.
Students find our classes equal parts relaxing, exciting and esteem-building and are encouraged to create in a supportive environment. A Little Ginger Studio Art class is a space to feel a sense of achievement. Students in our classes develop a real sense of camaraderie, and positive encouragement and collaboration between pupils is encouraged. However, ultimately, our classes are about having some creative, messy fun whilst learning technical skills.

Missed activities (eg clay) will not be repeated because of a missed class. Refunds for School Holiday workshops are only offered if cancelling more than 24hrs prior. LGS accepts no responsibility for classes missed because after care services were not notified via the proper channels. After care services cannot release your child to art class without parent permission. LGS reserves the right to cancel a student's enrolment without notice if their behaviour is too disruptive. Students must be picked up from class and cannot be released alone except via prior arrangement (eg. sms from parent).

Please clearly indicate that you do not wish your child to be photographed or else permission will be assumed. LGS reserves the right to employ fewer than advertised staff if enrolments are low. Students and parents are responsible for picking up any artworks if the last class of the term is missed. Leftover artworks will not be stored for longer than a month. Parents are responsible for communicating any student special needs to LGS prior to day of workshop / class and supplying adequate medicines & treatment plans if needed. This may include for example: asthma puffers, antihistamines, Epipens. Please do not send your child to a class if they are unwell. LGS will endeavour to provide a safe environment at all times - however, from time to time we may use materials that can cause minor injuries (scissors, hot glue guns, hobby electrics, paper cuts!). Parents retain ultimate responsibility for deciding whether their child is mature enough to partake in certain activities. Please do not book your child into a workshop you think they will struggle with. Students should also accept some personal responsibility for sensible use of materials. Please be assured all effort will be taken to ensure your child is happy, well and enjoys their art making experience!
