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, various papers and surfaces.
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.
I also offer Art Therapy and specialise with children with ASD.
Tammy Quire graduated from the Bayside Community College of Art with a High Distinction in Visual Art & Design. She spent several years working as a screen print design artist and freelance photographer before starting a family. In 2008 Tammy began working for Education Queensland in the area of behaviour management. She has worked extensively with children on an individual and group basis both developing and delivering specialised programs to kids including those on the autism spectrum.
More recently Tammy has furthered her training specifically focusing on the area of art therapy. This is an area Tammy is very passionate about so initially she completed a Therapeutic Arts Diploma (Renaissance Training Academy -UK) and then went on to complete an Art Therapist Diploma with Health & Harmony Colleges where she is now a part-time tutor. To add to these skills Tammy has also completed a 14 hour workshop in Sand Play Therapy – at the Gestalt Art Therapy Centre in Brisbane. I could spend an eternity studying art therapy and have recently commenced a clinical art therapy diploma as well.
In 2014 Tammy founded Tammy’s Art Studio in order to pass on her years of art and educational experience to the next generation. These days Tammy still teaches several group classes and art therapy sessions for children aged 5-18 yrs each week.
Art therapy… when words are not enough.

As art teachers our aim is to teach our students the following:-
Teaching them to have a go and to overcome any fears of unfamiliar materials or processes
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
