Term 4  Online Zoom Art Classes

Does your child need extra support for their Visual Arts course in Years 11 and 12?

Feeling uncomfortable with your kids attending face-to-face art classes?

Let us  encourage your child's imagination and  support you as a parent. Our zoom art classes offer your kids a creative and stress free art experience. Our classes are great for 5-12 year olds as an after school art activity or  an art activity supporting Years 10-12 students producing artwork for assessment for the HSC Visual Arts programme. Our creative  programmes  use a diverse range of art materials and techniques whilst introducing students to a variety of artists as inspiration for their artwork.

All classes are held on Sydney Australia time (GMT+10) – please make sure you adjust for your own timezone.

There will be demonstrations, guided drawing exercises, viewing and discussion of artwork by traditional and contemporary artists, information sheets and individual feedback on drawings produced.

Our course outlines  are flexible, depending on how much  time our  students feel  they need to complete their artworks. It is important to Gardens of the Mind that our students are allocated enough time to finish their artworks to their satisfaction  and given sufficient support so they feel they have done their best.
