Delivering creativity through workshops

JustArt Australia Sydney Art Workshops

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.

We are passionate about giving everyone the opportunity to explore their creativity which now can be done with our JustArt in a Box!
