After School Art Classes 2024 - Term 1

My after school classes will be running again on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons during school term time. At the end of last year a large group of my long term students graduated before starting high school. So this year there will be lots of new students in both classes.

In term 1 there will be a strong focus on drawing. It is the foundation of all other art forms so I always like to start my new students off by focusing on the basics.  In these classes we will explore shape, line, the various different pencil grades and how to use them, shading techniques, texture, perspective and composition.  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 the 8 week term are $224 which  includes all materials and equipment, plus a folder to keep artwork in. 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.

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!

        

Facebook

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.
