Weekend art workshops and master classes for adults

Our weekend workshops cater for artists too busy to escape the busy 9-5 work week, or visitors to Sydney looking for a something unique to do in Sydney. Some courses include materials while others you can pay a small fee for us to supply your materials for use in class. So there’s no reason not to dip your toe into the artistic waters. Our one day art workshops are usually held on Sunday, with some Intensive Master classes held over two days.

Many of these weekend classes are also suitable for high school students in year 9 and above.
