Do the staff have working with children checks?
Yes, they do. As well as the equivalent police checks in all the states across Australia.
Does my child need to bring anything to the lessons?
Yes, just a folder to start a portfolio of all their drawings & paintings. We supply all the art materials, paper & reference books.
Can you do colour work?
We specialise in Colour from photos in the studio. At parties we do mainly black & white because it is quicker. If you prefer we can also do colour for smaller functions.
