Delivering creativity through workshops
About JustArt Australia
JustArt Australia offers art workshops in Sydney led by qualified teachers providing creative and interactive sessions for students aged from 5 to 12 after school and during the school holidays.
We focus on providing the opportunity to work in both two and three dimensions across a wide range of media techniques and processes.
Students will learn through the process of creating from observations, gaining inspiration from artists, experimenting through learning key skills and creating a final art work.
Our research based programs focus on colour, shape, line, tone, pattern and texture to develop students individual thinking, imagination, self confidence, critical thinking and collaboration.
Workshops include ceramics, drawing, painting, digital media and print-making. Students will create, become a creator and be creative through JustArt Australia workshops.
JustArt Australia provides incursions for centres during the school holidays. We will supply all the materials for your students to develop their artistic confidence. We can provide any of varied holiday programs for 2018.
If you would like us to customise a workshop to suit a themed day, we would be more than happy to work with your requirements.
Incursions - Term 1 2018
Gelli Printmaking on Bunting
Gelli Printing has made its way to Australia!
But what is Gelli printing?
To make a Gelli print we use a gelatin-like plate which is durable and reusable to create your own colourful prints. It’s simple and fun to use with immediate prints.
These holidays we are excited to announce JustArt Australia will be holding its first Gelli Printing workshops.
Every student will have a Gelli Plate to work individually on. We will be creating fabulous markings, focusing on layers and colour tones. The students will print onto paper bunting to be hung in their rooms as soon as they get home.
Yes, we are cutting up paper and gluing it down, but there is so much more to it than that.
Where to place items on a page? How do shapes work with one another? How to cut out without making it look like it has been chopped? What colours to place together? Creating a collage helps students develop an understanding of composition and build up those fine motor skills.
Students will be inspired by Henri Matisse who is well known for his large scale collages, as well as Australian artist Laura Blythman who works on a smaller scale.
The students will be creating their own coloured paper by painting and drawing markings. They will use their designs to create a collage on their very own board, ready to take home for everyone to admire and enjoy.
Incursions - Term 2 2018
These holidays we’re excited to announce JustArt Australia will be holding Pop Art workshops.
Popularised by New York artists Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
We will teach students to create their own jaw-dropping personalised picture to frame.
Mondrian Stencil Printmaking
Get your little artists excited about printmaking with JustArt.
All ages will explore printing techniques to design and create a unique tote bag to take home and keep.

All students will have fun working with primary colours and geometric shapes to divide space on their bag to take home to use.

Fish Ceramics Diagram
It’s going to be a busy 90 minutes for students.
Students will paint their diagram box, then learn and apply ceramic techniques to design and create a fish using paper clay.
Students will add additional features with clay and drawings to their diagram to bring it to life.
Do you want your children to express their imagination?
By joining JustArt in the school holidays, students will learn how to create their own still life picture on a canvas.
Students will experiment with colors, lines and perspective to draw and paint using watercolours their own interpretation of flowers.
Incursions - Term 4 2018 / 19
Have you ever wanted to trick your eye? Optical art creates an optical illusion that gives the impression of movement, hidden images, vibrating patterns, swelling or warping.

Art has been always around Yvette, she has been reminded time and time again, how as a child she told her family she would love to live across the road from the NSW Art Gallery.
Yvette is an educator with a Masters in Teaching and Bachelor of Visual Arts Object Art and Design from Sydney University, working in various roles for nearly 15 years in diverse institutions from early childhood through to adults in Australia and the UK.

Gemma graduated from Newcastle University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Primary Education and a Bachelor of Arts. She spent time teaching in Australia before heading to the United Kingdom for two and a half years to teach in London and to North Carolina on the east coast of America for two years, where she taught in an Elementary School.
After returning to Australia, Gemma took a break from teaching where she joined the corporate world to work in Human Resources for 8 years. During her time in Human Resources she rediscovered her passion to be creative and how the power of self-expression empowers individuals to be the best version of themselves.
JustArt Australia creates an opportunity for individuals to express creativity, imagination, and artful thinking whilst under the direction of qualified teachers. Being creative allows individuals to become more in tune with their inner selves and allows self expression.
