The aim of this course is to give an opportunity for young children to explore new materials and stimulate their creativity in a playful atmosphere. Each class has a unique theme and materials, teaching fundamental skills through games and art projects. Ages 5 - 8 years.
Tutor Gemma is an artist based in Tāmaki Makaurau. She completed her Honours in Art History at Auckland University in 2020 and has been working in various art galleries since then. As a self-taught potter and a painter from early age, Jemma's day to day life is infused with art on many different levels. Having formal training in Art History means she can appreciate different styles and ways of expression and hopes to draw out each child's individuality. It is also very important to her that art is fun and explorative, the process is where the learning happens and allows children to look at the world closely, differently and explore expression through different materials.
