Our youngest Melbourne Studio of Art students experience a series of artistic challenges that introduce them to basic drawing and painting skills which give them a life-long foundation in their creativity.

Each term, students explore a variety of techniques that are backed up with art history, contemporary art and technical development. We strive even at this very young age to set their knowledge base up and learn how to look at work with a gentle critical eye.

At this stage of the child’s development we are also concerned with introducing them to the concept of expressing feelings through visual expression yet within the contained process of a planned project with a clear and solid outcome which they will be proud of.

Melbourne Studio of Art is committed to teaching students not only technique and expression, but also the importance of finishing that which is started. A large part of our educational system focuses on commitment, completion and the rewards that effort and discipline offer; we believe it is healthy for children to learn these lessons in these times of instant gratification and overly appreciated outcomes.
