Visual Arts

Short art classes give Sydney’s adults a chance to learn how to harness their creativity and use it productively in everyday life. We are all creative. Whether we ever had permission to explore imagination and develop artist techniques is a different matter. Even childhoods filled with a passion for art fall into the rut of adulthood where the proverbial hamster wheel is always chasing time. Step off the wheel and see how art classes for adults can change your perspective. Our classes are for a few hours a day or over the weekend, and we offer everything from drawing and painting to photography and practical art. Located in Sydney’s Central Business District, each short visual art course is accessible to everyone with public transport nearby and a building that is disabled friendly.
