Art Encounters offers children aged 5 – 8 an advanced approach to learning strong drawing and painting skills in a playful yet controlled environment. We believe in a balanced mix of challenge, discipline and expression in this age bracket where children are very open to new learning.

Our term programs include a strong focus on drawing and painting techniques. However, we also look at projects that are more tactile such as sculpture, printmaking, collage or mixed media. Our greatest quest for our young students is to give them early skills with which to express themselves.

Over the 22 years that the school has been running, it is clear that children who commence their art education early develop clear advantages not only in representational drawing and painting skills, but also in the ability to express their emotions and experiences in life.

Art Encounters is committed to teaching students not only technique and expression, but also the importance of finishing that which is started. A large part of our educational system focuses on commitment, completion and the rewards that effort and discipline offer; we believe it is healthy for children to learn these lessons in these times of instant gratification and overly appreciated outcomes.

With the instability of the past 2 years and the constant lock downs in our community, we have developed an impressive online program in the event that there is a compulsory lockdown in 2022 or the short shut down of our business due to an outbreak.  Please note that if you enrol, students will be expected to continue their studies online and that there will be no refunds, transfers or credits available.
