What we do

The Adult Art Explore Projects course offers instruction in a wide range of approaches and skills exploring various tools, techniques and materials. Some of the techniques covered include printmaking (screen printing, lino printing and etching), using the etching press, the laser cutter, the heat press for textiles, and also clay, with access to the kilns. We learn traditional fine art skills including painting and drawing from observation. Painting media include watercolour, acrylics and oils.

This course is intended as a space of artistic freedom which encourages creativity, self-expression and confidence in one’s own artistic capabilities. Please visit our Adult Art Explore Projects page for a full course description.

Included in the price

The price of the course includes use of all basic tools and materials needed for the course content as well as lunch, which is a home cooked vegetarian hotpot. Over time, we have discovered that the wellbeing of the class has evolved while sitting together around the kitchen table for 20 minutes for good food, conversation and company. We find this is as important as focused activities.

Not included in the price

If you would like to pursue specialist oil painting, we suggest that you source your own canvas and paints.

Try one class

If you would like to try one class in this course prior to committing yourself, we offer one-off trial classes for anyone new to Kite Studios or to this course. Please note that there is only one trial class available per learner per term in this course.
