canberra beginners art classes

I am located in canberra and have a 14 year old daughter who is interested in art i noticed you mentioned the best place to start is with a drawing class, although she has done some art in school, she is at a beginners level and wants to do this as a fun activity not to take too seriously can you suggest anyhing in our local area of canberra?

Hi Shanon,

It's Adam here from doMore. Thanks for your question.

In addition to the advice from Leanne and Gabrielle from Balmaine Art Workshops, in the next few days, we'll be releasing a new feature specifically for people like you who haven't been able to find an exact match for their learning needs. We're calling it the "Teacher Finder".

You'll be able to post your request for a teacher / course of a certain subject. Our system will notify all the relevant teachers we're connected with in that region and if they believe they can be of service to you, they'll get in touch.

For teachers, it will be a way for them to browse for students that may be able to fill the last few seats in their classes.

This is to say, if you haven't had any luck over the next few days finding local classes, feel free to come back and post your request on the doMore Teacher Finder and we'll do our best to connect you with a great local teacher that meets your needs.

Thanks everyone.

Have a great day!

Adam

I would recommend Drawing classes for your daughter as a good place to start as well as looking into Pastel drawing and painting too. The Artist Society of Canberra and also Queenbeyan Art Society may be able to help you with information. Art shops are also a great place to ask.These places might also hold childrens classes. Good luck and I hope she finds something she will enjoy. Children are so creative and I think whatever she ends up doing will be great for her and her creativity.

Hi Shannon
I don't know the Canberra market at all, but I am sure there would be some art classes there. Best to ask other parents or your daughter's art teacher where there are classes, or go toyour local art suppliers as they usually have flyers from teachers on the counter. Then check out the teachers you find -they should be chatty, have good personal expertise (you like their art!) and understand or have experience with 14 year old girls (they are so self critical!). I would still recommend starting with drawing because this is an immediate form of expression, with no real right or wrongs, and is fast becoming a really valued artform in the contemporary art scene. It also has lots of other applications- stress relief, visualising thoughts, creativity - Google was designed with a doodle on a napkin! Good luck!
