About our Young Artists Workshops
theartdept's Young Artists workshops are the ideal way to enhance your child's creativity. theartdept offers ideal teacher:student ratios with small class numbers of up to 15. Each five week programme involves a freshly generated topic that reflects the current New Zealand Arts Curriculum.
All visual art programmes have a rich knowing about art component; the children look at and talk about the work of artists when developing ideas for their own artwork. A special effort is made to include the work of contemporary New Zealand artists.
In every programme, drawing in a number of ways is used to develop and extend ideas and links with painting and or printmaking, collage and working with clay. theartdept programmes also have a rich language focus; art ideas are introduced and expanded using picture books and class discussions.
Pamela and Kerry are registered teachers and visual art educators who have a wide experience of working with primary aged children. Both are practising artists who aim to spark life-long learning in the arts. We look forward to working with your children to unleash their inner creativity.
