About Art Academy
Art Academy program is based on the time-tested methods developed by the European schools for artistically gifted children and adapted for special needs of Australian schools and colleges. Students accomplish a series of assignments in a specific progression, from easier to more complex ones. Design-oriented and creative assignments are also part of the program. Students gain mastery of different media including acrylic paints, watercolours, pencil, charcoal and pastels. Art Academy is different. Our atmosphere is informal but serious. While we make sure that the assignments are interesting to the children, they also teach them specific lessons, whether it is proportions or perspective or colour theory or spatial design.
Using a step-by-step method (the simple to the complex), students understand what is needed in order to draw successfully. The techniques taught to students gradually assists in helping them become more independent as they move through the learning process. These techniques are traditional and classical in approach. Depending upon students' manipulative skills, dexterity, and artistic experience, their program will be designed to their level of ability.
