Art for teenagers



This course is for people aged between 13 and 19 years. The maximum group size is 12.

Classes provide a fun, friendly and supportive atmosphere where teens can create within a group of peers with similar interests to their own.

This age group can really benefit from a positive arts experience, as it is a time for personal exploration and growing confidence.  Whether they wish to build on their folio development for VCE, learn basic skills or explore an interest area, the studio will provide the environment and the tuition to support students in achieving their goals.

Participants have the opportunity to exhibit in our end of year diversARTy exhibition at Eltham Library Gallery to celebrate their achievements with friends and family.

Trial sessions may be available. Please note that trial sessions are only offered where there is space available and does not guarantee a place in the course. If all places are taken before the trial session date, the trial session will be cancelled. Places may also be available in this course after the start date. Please contact us to enquire: 9433 3744


This course is held at our Eltham centre - 739 Main Road.
