Materials (Workshops & Masterclass)

Kerrie Neighbourhood House provide a range of materials for use in each class. Children are also required to bring along their own set of art materials and an art smock to class each week. This helps children to learn how to care for their own materials and allows children to complete any unfinished work at home.

Materials list:

Box 12 Derwent Watercolour pencils
HB, 2B, 4B grey lead pencils, Eraser and Sharpener
UHU glue stick
Fine artliner pens
Box 24 oil pastels
A3 Sketchbook (cartridge paper)
Art smock

(Items available from Officeworks)

Quality watercolour paint and brush packs are also available for purchase from the Art Masterclass Tutor for $12.00 each.

All Kerrie Neighbourhood House art students are invited to enter our annual Children’s Art Exhibition. This is a wonderful opportunity for young, emerging artists to showcase their work. The Exhibition is held in March of each year.

These half-day workshops are held during the Summer school holidays. They provide an opportunity for children to immerse themselves in at least 2 artworks using different mediums (e.g. acrylic, watercolour, pastel, pencil). Cost: $35.00 per workshop (includes Morning tea)
