Why Sydney Art School?

  • Structured and Varied Syllabus
  • Broad Cognitive Skills Development

Sydney Art School has developed a range of kids art classes that meet those expectations.

Your Children Get The Best Qualified and Professional Art Tutors in Sydney

All senior tutors in childrens art classes are tertiary qualified, and professional artists.  They combine full time art tutoring with their personal exhibition schedules.

Students in senior art classes who show high skill levels are invited to attend occasional adult classes and workshops when space permits.

Our extension art students are also given the opportunity to learn from some of Sydney’s best award winning artists including finalists and prizewinners in the Archibald, Sulman, Moran and Dobell art prizes.

An Art Class Syllabus that Combines Structure and Variety Enables Faster Development

To get the most benefit from art classes your child needs to be engaged across a wide area of styles techniques and subject matter.

Subject matter needs to be continually refreshed.  If children lose interest the benefits drop away.

Every term a new artistic topic is chosen and lesson plans are created.  The artistic topic focuses on a subject type e.g. portraiture, landscape, still life or an art movement  such as impressionism, surrealism, cubism.

Variety gives breadth to learning experiences and is an important factors in keeping the students engaged.

Structured lesson plans are developed by our team of artists and teachers with degrees in fine arts and education.

Cognitive Skills Development

Each term topic is supplemented with cognitive skills training exercises specifically designed to strengthen areas such as:

  • Visual memory,
  • Observation and concentration, and
  • Visual processing skills.

Value for Money

We pride ourselves on providing value for money.

Although you can find some classes that cost a little less than Sydney Art School – you will find that this usually means a compromise tutor quality, syllabus breadth and variety, facilities and materials.
