Time to Get Creative Again for 2019 Term 2 Art Classes Brisbane at The Gap

Are you looking for a productive and creative indulgence in The Gap? Take some time to enrich your artistic creativity in the next 10 weeks by joining the second term of Art Classes Brisbane at 12 Paltarra Street.

Beginning Tuesday, the 23rd of April 2019, enrollees at Art Classes Brisbane will meet once a week for a three-hour session until the 29th of June.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or have had art lessons in the past since creativity has no limits. You can sign up and learn to create art using various mediums like acrylic, gouache, oil, pencil, pen and ink, and watercolour.

Classes are $40 per session, but students get one free session if they sign up for the 10-week term ($360 for April to June). Students are expected to bring their own art materials, but they may also have access to the tutor’s supplies for an additional $15 per session.

Art Class Brisbane has listed the materials to prepare for each medium and you may check these out at their official site.

Each session includes a tea break. The art classes are designed for the students to have fun and to relax while they nurture and develop their creativity.  However, Art Classes Brisbane also offers casual art lessons, if you’re not yet ready to commit to a 10-week term for a rate of $60 per class.

There is also a special class for Mosaic for Beginners on Sunday, the 28th of April 2019, from 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. At $230, this class includes free materials. Morning and afternoon tea are provided but students should bring their lunch.
