After School Art Classes for Kids
With Kim Woolley
Wednesday & Thursday afternoons 3.30 – 4.30 p.m.
This year I am running classes from a room behind the Sherwood Uniting Church, (on the corner of Sherwood Road and Thallon Street). It is within walking distance of Sherwood State School and St. Joseph’s and is very close to Sherwood railway station. There is also convenient car parking directly outside.
I have successfully run after school art classes and other workshops since 2005 and have enjoyed sharing my passion for art with children of all ages, from pre-schoolers through to high school students.
Drawing underpins all other forms of art so I place a strong emphasis in my classes on teaching traditional techniques. I train the students to develop their powers of observation and how to translate what they see onto paper. We look at shape, line, shading techniques, texture, perspective and composition in these sessions, which gradually builds their expertise and confidence. The ability to draw from life is an important skill and I have a wide selection of weird and wonderful objects for children to study so that they can put into practice the techniques they have learnt.
My classes also cover a wide variety of different techniques and materials including working with a range of drawing mediums, painting, printing, mixed media pieces, mosaics and 3 dimensional pieces. However, drawing is always something that we return to periodically each term to in order to maintain those observational skills.
I am planning on starting a new class this term on Wednesday afternoons. If you would like to enrol your child in my classes or to find out more please feel free to contact me.

My Monday after school art class at Sherwood State School is currently working on an exciting project. They are decorating a life sized race horse for entry into the Brisbane Racing Club’s schools painting competition. The horse, which they have decided to turn into Black Caviar, is looking great and the girls have all worked very hard on bringing her to life.
