April 2022 Easter school holiday art workshops

Every class can be modified to suit all ages, stages and abilities. Classes include all materials (including aprons, easels if required). Aprons are provided, but, as always, remember to dress for a mess! This is a fully operational art studio.

Please note – Art Class Brisbane will be running things a bit differently these holidays. If your child under 7 years old / in kindy or prep 2022, they must be booked with a paying adult or be joined with an older sibling. Adults are not allowed to wait in the studio area unless they have purchased a paid seating ticket and are painting. Art Class Brisbane understands that some children can be anxious, so they advise you to purchase a ticket and enjoy the time together.
