Join our fabulous artist and arts tutor Christina Frank as she guides you through a wonderful 7 week creative program. During the term students will explore a range of techniques/materials focusing on building foundational skills in drawing, painting, collage and modelling in clay whilst harnessing their own unique creative expression. We will draw inspiration from life & imaginations weaving in the seasons, nature, dreams and story. Participants will also get the chance to work on and develop their own projects from home.

Please note Term 3 Teens Art Club will be held online from the Sydney Art Space Studio via Zoom from 3.30pm-5.00pm and the zoom link will be sent to you after your enrolment.

There will be the option to buy an Art Pack to cover our Term 3 program for $60 which you will find in your enrolment options below. This can be picked up from NBCS on Friday 16th July. If you have the art materials already and don’t require an art pack please let us know upon enrolment.

Continuing to develop your canvas painting composition of winter sea objects investigating light, shade, background and foreground.

Week 7

Painting up your sea vessels using acrylics to take home and enjoy.


I intend that this course supports and encourages the students’ own creative journey. Bring a small sketchbook with them, to record and develop their own ideas, dream up their own projects, and practice drawing. Sometimes in the process of artmaking there is waiting time, perhaps waiting for something to dry, or to take turns in using a particular process or piece of equipment. During these times the student can be using their sketchbook.
