A bit about Tammy’s Art Studio
A safe and creative space for children to develop their artistic side.
Classes are based on age appropriate motor skills and interests. A broad range of techniques and applications are covered in each class. Everything from the elements of design: – line, tone texture, shape and colour to prominent art periods and artists. We explore a variety of mediums such as acrylics, watercolours and pastels and apply these to canvas, paper mache, rice paper and more.
Students are encouraged to be imaginative and individual, to explore and have fun each and every week. Kids can advance at their own pace and have the freedom to investigate their own interests throughout the classes.
Tammy’s Art Studio is located on Watland Street at Springwood.

Teaching them to think outside the box and to be themselves
Teaching them that the mind has no limits, allowing them to dream
FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
Teaching them to show their feelings and to do it in their own personal style
Teaching them to be proud of their work and to never insult the work of others
Teaching them that mistakes are part of the creative process and can lead to the greatest work
Teaching them to share materials and ideas with the rest of the class
Teaching them to use, re-use and recycle items one would normally throw away
Teaching them that a great work of art takes time and one has to follow a process and to see it through
Teaching them to have respect for the teacher, their classmates, materials and the opinion of others
