We are often asked about art classes for teens or High School students who would like to participate in extracurricular visual art classes. On Mondays and Wednesdays after school and Saturday mornings we have visual art classes that are specifically designed for high school students who love to draw and paint. Our art tutors are professional practising and exhibiting artists who love to share their knowledge, love of art and nuture young artists.
Drawing and Painting Fundamentals for Teens | After School Mondays and Wednesdays
Prices include all art materials. This art class is for students in years 6- 9 (aged 11-14 years)* with a strong interest in fine arts. A great class for kids transitioning to High School and wishing to pursue secondary level visual art and who really want to learn much more about artmaking, art history, and refine and extend their skills in painting and drawing. Students will learn: foundation skills in drawing and painting, improve their ability to draw and paint realistically, learn more advanced concepts,use advanced materials such as oil paints, produce a portfolio of completed artworks

Developing Your Creativity for Teens | Saturday Mornings
In this Saturday art class, for early teens in years 6-9 (aged 11-14)*, students are and are encouraged to express their own ideas and tell their own stories through a series of structured projects. Over the 8 week term students will learn ways to develop their creative ideas into finished artworks, while also learning practical art-making skills in drawing, print-making, sculpture and painting. This is an exciting course designed to build on kids' skills term by term. The focus of this class is to improve children’s drawing and painting skills and develop their own style of working. Kids will use a variety of mediums. *Young people in year 9 and above are generally encouraged to attend adult classes
We recommend teens and young adults in year 9 and above try our adult art classes. During term time we have evening visual art classes, as well as a Saturday painting classes that may fit your busy timetable.
