Teaching the fundamentals
With the little ones we aim to develop their grip, expose them to the main art mediums we teach, such as clay, drawing, painting and printmaking. We start building an understanding of basic shapes so they can move on to more advance classes at a later stage. We also do fun activities like creating collages and cutting up ribbons as this helps with the development of fine motor skills, have a look at some fun activities to practice with in our Art Activities for Fine Motor Skills Development blog post.
We teach them how to set up proper art stations for each medium, the basics of working with each medium as well as how to clean up after themselves.
We try and get them use to working on easels and develop their concentrations. They need to become “Art fit” and prepare them for longer classes when they turn 6.

From which age do you teach?
These lessons are aimed at kids age 4 – 6 We focus on developing fine motor skills and other OT development in them.
Am I allowed to sit in on children’s art classes?
We regret that we do not allow parents to sit in on classes. We have found this distracting to the students. Parents also tend to correct their children during the creative process, the studio needs to be a safe space for them to create. If your child is still a toddler you can sit with them for 5-10 mins just to get them to relax, but after that, we kindly request that you slip out of the class and allow them to progress on their own.
