Art class basics

The early creative process starts with a pencil squiggle on paper. But there's far more to explore beyond types of drawing ideas. Painting, craftwork are just three fun mediums of art your little ones can have fun with.

Ask the art teacher or organiser which activities they will teach, or specialise in, when you book up a lesson or two.
