Art Lessons For Kids

Art Lessons for Kids in Coromandel
With full time artist and best-selling illustrator Emma Evangeline Gustafson

I’m running lessons for kids and teens around 10 - 16 years old.  
These lessons are based in my home studio in Whitianga.


My one off classes are $35 morning sessions 10AM-11.30AM (I'm available to do those on all of the highlighted days, on the calendar below)

My 6 week programme is $160 and runs weekly in afternoon sessions 2PM - 3.30PM (join the Wednesday group, Thursday group or Friday group)

For the 6 week programme, choose to be in the Wednesday group, Thursday group or Friday group.
One off classes can be booked on any of the highlighted days below as they run in the mornings.
You can book classes from 14th of December - see calendar below

Each of the classes are 1.5 hour sessions and all materials are provided.
For anyone wanting to book in a group, my studio can fit 4 students max.

Message/email me to book a class.


 Six Week Course:
In the 6 week course students will start with basic perspective and colour theory exercises and build up to creating a landscape painting that means something to them! I will be sharing tips I've picked up from my 7 years of painting and my personal philosophy on what it means to make art.
I don't want students to feel like they have to follow my specific style, I believe our uniqueness is what makes our art special.. but I will be teaching some of the fundamental drawing/painting techniques that I think are helpful for any aspiring artist!

One off classes will either be a:
Creek/Forest Scene - learn how to paint waterfalls, reflections in water, native trees
Beach Scene - learn how to paint clear water, waves, blended skies and clouds.
Native Bird scene -  learn how to paint a native bird (Tui, Kereru, Morepork or Fantail)

- If there is another subject they are particularly keen to learn, I'm happy to accommodate that, ^ the subjects listed above are just my specialties.

Qualifications: I have a bachelor of Visual Communication Design with first-class honours and have been working as an artist full time over the past 3 years. Last year I managed to score the Peoples Choice Award at the New Zealand Youth Art Awards for my painting Sacred Waters.
