After School Classes 2023
I am currently running two after school art classes, one in Oxley on a Wednesday afternoon and another in Sherwood on a Thursday. They both run from 3.45 - 4.45 p.m. during school term times.
The classes encompass a wide range of techniques and mediums, including drawing, painting, printing and three dimensional work. However, drawing is the foundation of all other art forms so I always like to revisit it on a regular basis. As well as lots of visual reference material, I have a wealth of weird and wonderful objects for the kids to study!
The classes are best suited to students in grade 2 and above . Fees for a 10 week term are currently $270 which includes all materials and equipment, plus a folder to keep artwork in. If you’d like to see some recent examples of my work and that of my students I have a Facebook page, listed under Kim Woolley Artist
Both of these classes are full at the moment. (A lot of my students attend my classes on an ongoing basis, sometimes for many years). However at the end of this term I have a large number of grade 6 students who will be graduating. So at the start of 2024 I will have lots of places available.
Places are limited so please contact me if you would like to secure a place for your child or if you would like any further information.
Below are some kind comments from a couple of my current families:
My daughter has been one of Kim's art students for the last three years, and she is currently eagerly anticipating the start of this year's lessons. She looks forward to Kim's classes all week during term, and shows her art portfolio to everyone she can. Kim is a kind and caring teacher with an excellent relationship with her students. We're lucky to have access to such a wonderful art class.
What I like as a parent is the classes aren’t too large, it is a relaxed environment and everyone is encouraged to develop at their own pace. Your ability to go through the techniques used, (I had never heard of hatching and cross hatching in drawing!) and that you do many mediums not just painting or drawing. Highly recommended!
THECA Flora and Fauna Art Show
I found out yesterday that not only had I sold 2 of my artworks in the THECA exhibition at the weekend but that I had been awarded the people's choice awards for the most popular painting, (for my tawny frogmouth chicks) and most popular artist. It was a lovely surprise and the news definitely made my day!
After an enormous amount of nagging from family and friends I have finally set up a Facebook page for my work. Thanks to my kids, (the tech support team), for all of their help with this. I will now be posting images of my work and also that of my students on a regular basis . If you want to take a look the page is listed under Kim Woolley Artist
After school art classes at Sherwood State School
Although these photos are now very old, (all of these girls are by now either working or at university), they still make me smile and remind me of the fun they had working on this unusual project. I still think of the storage area under the school's admin building as 'the stable'!
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.
