The Feilding and District Art Society runs two after school art classes per week, catering to different age groups and abilities. Pricing varies per class, with a pay-as-you go option available for our Thursday sessions.
Budding Artists with Eris Newson
Tuesdays 3.30pm to 5pm - Ages 5 to 9 - Starting October 18
Eris Newson is a Halcombe-based artist whose art is characterized by variety and experimentation. She is experienced in oils, acrylics and watercolour, as well as digital art and photography.
In her classes, Eris draws on her extensive skillset to teach students not only how to make art, but how to handle different media and tools - helping them develop skills they can apply to other creative projects.
Previous classes have seen students try their hand and cave painting, scraffito, watercolours, portraiture, and just about everything in between. Students gain confidence and a willingness to explore their creative potential!
Thanks for funding from the Manawatu District Council Creative Communities Scheme, the Term 4 fee is only $30 per student.
Future Masters with Cheryl O'Brien
Thursdays 3.30pm to 5pm - Ages 10 to 14 - Starting October 20
Cheryl O'Brien is a portrait artist whose work seeks to capture the essence, expression and soul of her subjects. Working primarily in acrylics, Cheryl's art is bright and bold, combining realism and abstraction to create works reminiscent of pop art but in a style entirely her own.
In Future Masters, Cheryl empowers her students to find their own creative voices and develop their own unique style. Throughout the term, she will work with students to develop foundational skills and inspire them with the work of other artists, before showing them how to apply those skills to their own art.
The Term 4 fee is $180 per student, including all materials.
