Classes limited to 8 students per session.

An art exhibition is held at the end of the year showcasing students' work, many of which are for sale (artworks that have been created using copyright images as reference material will not be sold).

Students starting at a later date can pay for the remainder of the term pro rata (the remainder of the term) at $45 for 3 hours. Students paying casually, pay $48 for 3 hours.

Participants are not required to bring materials to their first class, at the end of the first class a small list is provided to students enabling them to purchase the art materials required for their second art class.

After the first lesson students who haven't bought along their materials are welcome to use the art tutors, this will incur a $10 fee per lesson. Students are also welcome to purchase art supplies from the art tutor.

This is a great opportunity to try your hand at something new and exciting, as well as a fun way to meet like-minded people.
