Holiday Art Class with Jaimee Paul (Ages 8+)
For budding artists looking to improve their creative skills, meet with like minded individuals, and try something new. This is a great school holiday activity.
Jaimee’s teaching style is student-led so your child can run free with whatever they are passionate about, spending a day of their holidays learning to build creative confidence! The first half of the day will consist of fine art techniques and drawing activities. After a break for lunch, the students will begin their own artwork from a reference image or object of their choice. Jaimee’s approach to teaching provides her students with both creative freedom and guidance. She offers her students hands-on practical tips, a wealth of knowledge and a supportive, fun environment to learn and grow. Whilst working in any style, medium, form and subject matter that they are passionate about! A rare thing for school kids!
Ages 8 and up so all skill levels and interests welcome.
Jaimee maintains a successful art career, 12 years of private tutoring experience and 5 years working as a technician in private schools. In her personal practice she creates Art For Purpose, specialising in black and white animal portraits of endangered animals.
Jaimee is passionate about guiding young creative minds, encouraging them to find confidence in their own style and passion. Each year, at least one of her students has found themselves nominated for ‘Art Express’ or ‘Express Yourself.’ These are both prestigious platforms within the art world, for showcasing the best High School students in NSW, Australia. She is honoured to be a part of each and everyone of her students' artistic journeys.
