Flying Fox Studios
Music, Art & Construction Classes in Everton Park
Flying Fox Studios, located in Everton Park on Brisbane’s north-side, is a family business that has been built on a strong passion to encourage a love of creating, learning and the arts in children. Kindermusik, Zoom Art and Fox Blocks classes at Flying Fox Studios run every school term, with holiday workshops always being an incredibly popular opportunity to keep the kids engaged and creating while school’s out. All of the Flying Fox programs aim to encourage exploration, imagination and concentration, while also gaining lateral thinking and teamwork skills to positively influence the way children interact with their environment.
Zoomart Creative Classes
Zoomart is a fun active way of learning through art- different age levels, incorporating stories, games, themes and visual arts. Story telling and music is often incorporated into Zoomart classes, along with lots of collage, painting, cutting and an introduction to art skills appropriate to each age group. The Zoomart teachers are patient, engaging and enthusiastic with students, playing a big role in empowering them to feel safe to make their own independent creative decisions. Art classes are hosted for each age group, for children aged from 2 years of age, right up to senior high (grades 9-12) and adults. Classes are scheduled 6 days a week, Monday to Saturday, with pop-up workshops for adults on Friday nights and Saturdays.
Drop-in Toddler Play Sessions
Drop-in play sessions for toddlers are held on Wednesday mornings from 10:15am to 11:45pm. It is a low cost activity ($5 per family) and use non-consumable resources. Structured differently than the Flying Fox Zoomart classes, these toddler play sessions feature more facilitated creative prompts (like shadow puppets, chalk drawing, kinetic sand, construction play, pretend play etc.). Toddler play sessions use of all the amazing Flying Fox resources in a way that connects kids and parents in fun, creative & sensory activities.
Fox Blocks Building Program
The Fox Blocks Creative Construction Program is for boys and girls in grades pre-prep to year 7. Using materials such as Lego, K’nex, Edushape and reclaimed objects, Fox Blocks classes encourage children to explore the world around them and to create through the use of team work, problem solving and planning.
Music classes with Kindermusik bring the power of music into your kids’ development by assisting with skills in problem solving, social skill, self esteem and musicality.
